E.S.V. B-Ionic 2-Part Calcium Buffer Information



Part #: 150

B-Ionic Calcium Buffer is the original, unique, easy to use, two-component liquid supplement system. When using equal volumes of each component, the aquarist can easily maintain calcium and alkalinity levels with no mixing powders, disruption of ionic balance, or addition of organic chemicals. B-Ionic Calcium Buffer System does not contain phosphates or nitrates. In addition to supplying highly concentrated calcium and carbonate alkalinity required for calcification, B-Ionic Calcium Buffer System also provides all other important major, minor, and trace elements in the proper ratios to duplicate the composition of natural seawater. As a result, B-Ionic Calcium Buffer System will help restore inorganic ions lost from protein skimming and help maintain the ionic balance of the aquarium water. Starting daily dosage is 1 ml per 4 gallons of aquarium capacity.

Specifications


  • highly concentrated calcium and carbonate alkalinity
  • major, minor, and trace elements
  • 1 ml per 4 gallons of aquarium capacity

Our recommended starting dose is 1 ml. of each component per 4 gallons of aquarium capacity per day. Maintain alkalinity between 3.0 and 3.75 meq/liter (8.4 and 10.5 dKH) by testing daily and adjusting dose accordingly. Depending on the degree of calcification occurring in the aquarium, dose may have to be significantly increased over our recommended starting dose. Never add more than 1 ml. per gallon of each component in a 24 hour period, and never allow pH to rise above 8.45. Once the proper dose has been determined for your aquarium, testing can be performed less frequently. If your aquarium tends to run at a higher pH (over 8.45) we suggest you try our B-Ionic Calcium Bicarbonate System. When using kalkwasser in addition to B-Ionic Calcium Buffer System, follow the above procedure but start with 1 ml of each component per 8 gallons of aquarium capacity per day. For more detailed directions please refer to our product label.

Component A - Carbonate Alkalinity: 2800 meq/liter (7840 dKH). 1 ml per gallon of aquarium water will raise alkalinity by 0.74 meq/liter (2.07 dKH).
Component B - Calcium Concentration: 54,000 ppm calcium ion. 1 ml per gallon of aquarium water will raise calcium concentration by 16ppm.

Excellent!

Comments: I have used different brands of buffers over the years on my 180 gallon Reef tank and E.S.V. has been by far the best!! Corals and Invert's are happy and the purple algae is growing constantly and bright as can be. Great product and very much worth the couple extra dollars in shipping. Good Reefing :)

Comments: Very simple and easy to use product, I used it for a year and never had any problems, just add two cups a day and forget about using hudrends of bottles to keep your calcium and alkilinity stable.

Excellent!

Comments: I have tried several buffers but this is by far the best. It keeps pH, hardness and Calcium in perfect balance. A bit more expensive, but well worth it!
