Alkaline Buffer 300g
Why It's Different
What distinguishes Alkaline Buffer from other buffers is that it does not contain phosphates. This makes it ideal for the planted aquarium, where excess phosphate could contribute to undesirable algae growth.
To increase pH, use 1 teaspoon (7g) for every 80 L (20 gallons) daily until desired pH is reached (this dose raises alkalinity by about 1 meq/L (2.8 dKH)).
In order to adjust pH gradually, use Alkaline Buffer with Acid Buffer.
When using Alkaline Buffer & Acid Buffer together to target a specific pH, utilize the suggested ratio chart. This chart is based on use in RO or RO/DI water and ratios may need to be adjusted for use in tap water.
