Seachem Acid Buffer 250 Grams
[000116024600]



Acid Buffer

UPC: 000116024600

Manufacture: Seachem

Acid Bufferª is a non-phosphate buffer to lower pH and buffer with Alkaline Bufferª. Both buffers are designed for the planted aquarium or for very hard water where phosphate buffers may pose an algae or cloudiness problem. Acid Bufferª lowers pH and buffers between 5.0 and 8.0 when used with Alkaline Bufferª. As Acid Bufferª lowers pH it converts carbonate alkalinity (KH) into available CO2. Compatible with all Seachem products.

DIRECTIONS: To lower pH, use 2g (1-4 teaspoon) to every 80 L (20 gallons*) daily until intended pH is reached (this dose lowers alkalinity by about 0.2 meq/L (0.6 dKH)). Best if added directly to aquarium. If water is soft or not well buffered, use with Alkaline Bufferª (see below). TIPS: Larger doses may be required in very hard (KH) alkaline waters. If using with RO or DI water for a water change, then use with Alkaline Bufferª at a fixed ratio (see chart) to set the desired pH. Once pH is set add water change water to aquarium as soon as possible to avoid pH fluctuations (for best results, base ratio on weight): (AcidBuf:AlkBuf-pH) (1 : 0.5-5.0)(1 : 1.0-6.0)(1 : 1.3-6.5)(1 : 2.0-7.0)(1 : 2.5-7.5) (1 : 4.0-8.0)
