OceanLife comes up at interzoo with several innovations, among which the most important is the new biologically activated bottled water: Coral Sea Water.

The idea is positively intriguing. Instead of purchasing the salt directly, you can acquire already salted and ready to use water. This way you can count on industrially produced reverse osmosis water, and therefore (of /a) higher quality than the one we could produce at home; on the use of OceanLife’s Supreme sea salt, presumably one of the best salts on the market; on a theoretically perfect melting process.

But that’s not all. Because the salt proves to be alive, or rather biologically activated. We believe that someway selected blends of bacteria have been inoculated. This way there is no pathogenic agent within the water, no kind of contaminant within the flacon, just water that can be directly poured in the aquarium, maybe after bringing it to its own temperature.

One of the best features is the possibility of storing a noteworthy amount of water in order to always have an emergency replacement. This in addition to knowing you are using an essentially perfect water.

Furthermore, since it’s an Italian product, and it doesn’t have to be fished out of the sea as, for example, the two waters we have previously talked about, Natural Sea Water for Reef Aquarium and Two Little Fish‘s  Accurasea NSW it should have an extremely competitive prince on the market.

OceanLife’s Simone and Luca with DaniReef

We at DaniReef made arrangements with OceanLife’s Simone and Luca, that you can see in the previous picture, to quickly receive a jug we will test for you. We are very curious, and we could migrate to using this type of water for a fair price.

The Aquascaping corner with Simone Castagnoli

OceanLife is not only about salt-water, therefore we could also appreciate the two aquascapings our friend Simone Castagnoli prepared.

But these aren’t all of OceanLife’s products , and so Simone and Luca entertained us by displaying their whole product line.
