Key Features

  • Lowers aquarium pH and buffers from 6.0 to 8.0
  • Converts alkalinity into CO2
  • For the planted aquarium or very hard water

Acid Buffer is a non-phosphate buffer to lower pH and buffer with Alkaline Buffer. Both buffers are designed for the planted aquarium or for very hard water where phosphate buffers may pose an algae or cloudiness problem. Acid Buffer lowers pH and buffers between 5.0 and 8.0 when used with Alkaline Buffer. As Acid Buffer 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 Buffer (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 Buffer 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: lkBuf-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)

Description

Seachem Acid Buffer 300 Grams (10.6 oz)

Seachem Acid Buffer is a non-phosphate buffer to lower pH and buffer with Alkaline Buffer. Both buffers are designed for the planted aquarium or for very hard water where phosphate buffers may pose an algae or cloudiness problem.


Seachem Acid Buffer lowers pH and buffers between 5.0 and 8.0 when used with Alkaline Buffer. As Acid Buffer lowers pH it converts carbonate alkalinity (KH) into available CO2. It may also be used to safely lower pH in marine water.


Directions: To lower pH, use 1/4 teaspoon (2g) for every 80 L (20 US gallons) daily until desired pH is reached (this dose lowers alkalinity by about 0.2 meq/L (0.6 dKH)). Larger doses may be required in very hard (KH) or alkaline waters.
