Alkaline Bufferª is a non-phosphate buffer to raise pH and buffer with Acid Bufferª. These buffers are designed for the planted aquarium or for very hard water where phosphate buffers may pose an algae or cloudiness problem. Alkaline Bufferª raises pH and buffers between 7.2 and 8.5. It is gentle, safe, and enhances the freshwater environment. Contains sodium, potassium, magnesium, and other bicarbonate salts.
DIRECTIONS: Use 7 g (1 level teaspoon) for every 40 L (10 gallons*) daily until desired pH is reached (this dose raises alkalinity by about 2 meq/L (5.6 dKH)). If water is soft or not well buffered, use with Acid Bufferª (see below). HINTS: Alkaline Bufferª will not lower pH. It may be added directly to the aquarium at any time. It preferentially buffers at pH 7.8, but can manage any pH between 7.2 and 8.5 when used with Acid Bufferª. If using with RO or DI water for a water change, then use with Acid 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 wei
