When used as directed Reef Buffer will raise the pH of your reef system to 8.3 without fear of accidentally overshooting the pH to a dangerous level.
- Raises pH to 8.3
- Raises pH and carbonate alkalinity together
- pK (8.6) allows for greater pH stability in a reef system where the bioload is significantly more than in a fish only system
Check pH and alkalinity before use. Use 5g (1 level teaspoon) for every 150L (40 US gallons) to raise pH by about 0.1 pH units (this will also raise alkalinity by about 0.5 meq/L). Dissolve in at least 250mL (one cup) of freshwater, then add to the tank. The pH of natural sea water is 8.25-8.30. In a well established reef system pH adjustment may be necessary biweekly to semiweekly. Dosing requirements will vary, but do not exceed the recommended dose without checking your pH and alkalinity.
