Seachem Laboratories Acid Buffer Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

When it comes to maintaining aquariums, the greatest problems that you will face are often with the water, regardless if you use fresh or saltwater. If these issues are not addressed properly and immediately, it will give way to the production of dirty water, which, in turn, will result to the buildup of algae. To combat this, you have to do certain things to make sure that your tank is spotless. One way you can assure this is to use the Seachem Acid Buffer from Pet Store, which focuses on the pH level of your water.

The Seachem Acid Buffer is available in a 300-gram container, which is enough to cover almost a thousand gallons of water. Knowing this, you are then assured of its effectivity, and you are now informed that a little pinch of this powder is enough to protect your aquarium.

What's great about the Seachem Acid Buffer is that it gets into the underlying reason why there are algae. In most cases, it is because of the acidic pH level of the tank water. This product is responsible for keeping the liquid's acidity to a bare minimum, encouraging enough alkalinity to set in. This not only prevents a cloudy environment and an algae-ridden home, but it also avoids fish stress.

Maintain a cleaner aquarium that is free from algae and bacteria with the Seachem Acid Buffer. Plus, it provides a safer environment that your aquatic inhabitants will appreciate and enjoy.

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. 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. A 300 g bottle treats over 900 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!!!!!
