Seachem Laboratories Acid Buffer - 50 Grams Information

DIRECTIONS: To lower pH, use 1 measure (enclosed) to every 20?L (5 US 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: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)

  • i70 g / 2.5 oz (Treats 450 L (120 US Gallons))

Comments: Used during a water change in conjunction with Neutral Regulator. Acid Buffer has lowered PH level under 7.8 it's day 2 and counting. Looking for 7.0, I will try a second dose on day 3 if PH is no lower.

Comments: I've been trying to lower my 60 gallon's PH forever. Not even after pressurized CO2was added. I just discovered this product recently. We have 7.6 PH here in LA. I use this with peat granules and it lowers the PH down to a perfect 6.0 for my discus and angelfish. Tried using Seachem discus buffer before and that created algae bloom. Great product, just make sure you follow directions and not overdose. This is not snakeoil people!

Comments: I have been successfully operating freshwater tanks for over 20 years. This product, used in the small amounts recommended, is THE BEST fix for tap water with higher pH. It contains no phosphates, so there is no nasty algae bloom and has never clouded the tank water!!! Very safe & dependable. BUT, to the novice, still check pH every week to be safe. Outstanding product. Have been using Acid Buffer for almost 12 years now!!!!!
