Seachem Laboratories Laboratories Reef Buffer - 500 Grams Information


Product Manuals & Documentation

Maintaining your aquarium water’s pH to 8.3 is now easy with the use of Seachem Reef Buffer from Pet Store. This formulation is designed to achieve the right pH level of a closed reef system. It is quite normal to fall short of the 8.3 pK saltwater buffer when there are many inhabitants in your tank producing organic acids that reduce the pH level of your aquarium water.

By having an 8.6 pK, which is higher than other buffer products, the Reef Buffer can keep your tank’s pH to the required level despite the heavy biological load thriving in your tank. This buffer provides your tank with a more stable pH level which your reef aquatic life need for growth and vitality.

The Seachem Reef Buffer comes in a 500 gram- pack. This is enough for multiple applications since you need only a teaspoon of the product for every 40 gallons of water. This amount can already raise the water pH to 0.1pH and the alkalinity to 0.5 meq/liter. It is so easy to use. Simply dissolve in a cup of freshwater and then pour the mixture in the tank. Reaching the natural pH of marine water, that is 8.25-8.30, is so simple with this reef buffer.

Seachem Reef Buffer ™ is intended primarily for use in a reef system where the maintenance of a pH of 8.3 is often difficult. When used as directed Reef Buffer™ will raise the pH of your reef system to 8.3 without fear of accidentally overshooting the pH to a dangerous level. Reef Buffer™ will also raise carbonate alkalinity. Reef Buffer™ is a blended product and is not just sodium carbonate. Reef Builder™ should be used to raise alkalinity when pH is not a problem. Use Seachem`s MultiTest: Marine pH & Alkalinity™ to check pH and total alkalinity. 500 g treats 16,000 L (4,000 gallons).

Comments: I've been using this product for a few months to elevate pH in a 175 gallon custom aquarium. I chose this product due to issues with low pH and this product's description indicated it would be a good choice. I've found that it maintains the pH without elevating the alkalinity too much. I dispense during the night with a doser. Unlike Seachem Marine Buffer, it can raise the pH higher than 8.3 if too much is added at once.

Comments: Love this stuff..I have been using for over 2 yrs. If you have a marine tank,, you need this. It is hard to keep ph up after you've had a tank running for a couple of years,(especially when you start to slack on your water changes) I mix a batch up in between water changes. I Would be lost without it. Other products I've tried always raise the carbonate hardness too high.

Comments: This is a great product. I was having a problem with calcium precipitation using some of the other products, but no longer. Also because you only use one teaspoon per 40 gallons it goes a long way.

Comments: I was having issues with low pH levels in my reef tank. I started dosing Seachem's Reef Buffer along with kalkwasser and the combination has helped with my pH issues.
