Continuum Aquatics Reef-Basis KH Liquid Alkalinity Buffer - 250 ml Information




Reef•Basis KH Buffer
Description: pH & Alkalinity control for Marine Aquariums

Features:
• Automatically controls pH to provide stability
• Raises KH (Alkalinity) in marine & reef aquariums
• Promotes Coraline Algae Growth

Advantages:
Basis KH Liquid Buffer is a high quality, multi-component blended true buffering system designed to raise the alkalinity or buffering capacity of marine fish and reef aquariums and automatically regulate the pH. It will hold pH stable over a wide range of conditions providing for safety of the entire system.

Use in Aquarium Keeping:
Proper control of pH is one of the most critical functions of a marine fish or reef aquarium. If you only measure one paramether of your aquarium, measure the alkalinity! It is the most important one. If pH is allowed to drop due to decay of organic matter, over saturation with carbon dioxide or any type of acid addition, then the animals will suffer and if it drops too much, they will become ill or die. Continuum recommends that you maintain an alkalinity level of 7 to 11 dKH (2.5 to 4 meq/L) and a pH of 8.3. Note: Aquarists keeping SPS corals should consider keeping alkalinity at 7 to no more than 9 dKH (2.5 to 3.21 meq/L).Do not add simultaneously with calcium or mineral supplements, wait a few minutes and allow for plenty of circulation prior. By waiting, you will avoid unnecessary precipitation and possible cloudiness.

Directions:
Shake well prior to use. Add 1 capful (5 ml) per 25 US-gallons ( 95 L ) of marine aquarium water 3 to 4 times per week. For best results, measure the alkalinity and add as necessary to maintain the desired alkalinity between 8 and 11 dKH (2.9 to 4 meq/L).

Expert Use:
Dosing through use of a separate drip system is a superior method of addition. Two dosing systems are required to dose basis KH liquid simultaneously with calcium supplements and most other additives. Do not mix basis KH liquid with calcium or mineral supplements prior to addition. Determine the amount of alkalinity consumption during the time it takes add the entire volume of your drip system. Determine the amount of basis KH to add in milliliters by multiplying your tank capacity in gallons by the amount you want to raise it in meq/L and by 1.0 or in dKH by .357 (Example: if you have a 50 gallon tank and you want to raise the level by 1 meq/L with the entire dose, you would multiply 50 x 1 which equals 50 ml of basis KH liquid or 10 capfuls. Or if you want to raise it by 1 dKH, you would multiply 50 x .357 = 17.85 ml or about 3-1/2 capfuls.)

Caution:
Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption. Contains strongly alkaline carbonic acid salts, if ingested drink plenty of water and consult your medical practitioner. If in eyes flush with water for 15 minutes, if redness continues, consult your medical practitioner. If on skin flush with water.
