Salinity correction calculator
The Essentials produce a saltwater-like liquid with which the elements consumed by your corals can be safely balanced. However, the use of Essentials pro usually leads to a gradual increase in the salinity of your aquarium water. This results in the possibility of a miniature water change, which at the same time corrects the salinity of your aquarium water. Replace the calculated amount of seaewater with ro water. The salinity correction is best done manually.
