Fauna Marin salts follow pharmaceutical purity standards and are packaged accordingly. When prepping our salts, we go the extra mile and not only look at the data sheet, but also take great care to control organic and inorganic trace elements that are added. These standards allow us to ensure the consistency and effectiveness of our products.
With Fauna Marin Balling-Light salts, you get the purist form of special salts which are specially made for marine aquatics. In addition, we use bio-active stabilizers, pH buffers, and special minerals which significantly increase the stability of your aquariums parameters. With the addition of trace elements, the solution remains stable and are easily consumed by the corals.
Through the use of our salt mixtures, you specifically add minerals and trace elements that most sea salts do not have or are available in limited amounts. The addition of bioactive components with the purity of our salts prevent your coral from becoming blackened. As a result, growth and color formation is improved through the use of Fauna Marin balling salts.
Fauna Marin provides a complete product line which simplifies Calcium, Alkalinity, and Magnesium dosing. When combined with Fauna Marin Trace B Elements, your corals are provided with elements that aid in color enhancement, growth, and polyp extension.

The Fauna Marin Balling Light System is a complete self-contained system which can be used in conjunction with all standard filtration systems. Berlin systems, natural filtration systems, and nutrient management systems such as Zeolite systems are also safe with Balling Light Method. With the Balling Light Method, you can precisely add substances that are missing from the aquarium.
Fauna Marin Balling Light method consists of
- Calcium Chloride-dihydrate
- Magnesium Chloride-hexahydrate
- Sodium Bicarbonate
- We recommend maintaining Calcium between 380 – 420 ppm
Calculating dosage amount
When starting with your first dose, we recommend a baseline dose of 1ml per 3-4 gallons. You can also calculate the recommended dosage for your tank by using the Aquacalculator. This handy tool can be downloaded at www.aquacalculator.com. It will provide you with a dosage calculation based on your current tank volume and current tank parameters.
Aqua Calculator is the only online tool which provides accurate dosage recommendations based on the original Balling-Light recipe. Other calculators provide dosage recommendations based on the classic recipe which is different and therefore incorrect for this system.
Recommended dosing schedule
The more often you dose, the more stable your parameters can become. For that reason we recommend you calculate your daily dose and split it into multiple doses throughout the day. For automated dosing, we recommend the GHL Doser 2.1 which is an ideal dosing unit for this method.
If you feel that you need additional trace elements, please use Fauna Marin Color Elements. With these elements, you can intensify coral coloration and stimulate growth.
