Give your fishes an aquarium with well-balanced water, as well as one that teems with healthy and edible algae, by using the Kent Marine Pro Buffer DKH from Pet Store. This 16-ounce liquid formula will make sure that the pH level of your water is at its best, letting friendly algae grow in your fish tank for your pets to eat. This is a must-have for marine hobbyists like you who want nothing but the best for their sea pals.

This product contains a special formula that helps balance out the pH level of the water in your aquarium. It also provides the carbonate elements needed to buffer its alkalinity. It does not contain harmful chemicals, additives or preservatives that have a nasty effect on your pets and their home. This gives your pets a completely safe and sound artificial environment. The product also contains supplements that encourage the growth of some algae that are edible and healthy for your fishes, plants and corals. It does this without nourishing any harmful hair algae and other unwanted weeds.

So give your pets the best with the Kent Marine Pro Buffer DKH . This product will definitely let your fishes, plants and corals live longer and healthier in their aquarium.

Enhanced Pro Buffer dKH with Coralline Accelerator raises alkalinity or buffering capacity and works automatically to control pH in any marine aquarium. In addition, when used with any of our calcium additives, it encourages strong coralline algae growth. Each 16 oz. of Pro Buffer dKH will treat 1,900 gallons or 7,200 litres.

Important: Read use & interaction below! Add 10 ml per 40 gallons aquarium capacity each day, in a high flow area of the aquarium, until target alkalinity is reached. Use along with any good calcium supplement to stabilize alkalinity in a reef type marine aquarium. Add in the morning to prevent overshoot of pH. (Cap on 16 oz. bottle equals 5 ml, Cap on 64 oz. and gallon equals 10 ml) Never mix with a calcium or magnesium solution, add to tank separately. Some cloudiness may be observed. This should go away rapidly.

Considerations for use:
A pH of 8.0 to 8.3 and an alkalinity of 2.9 to 4.0 meq/L (8 to 11 dKH) is recommended for reef type aquariums (fish only marine aquariums should maintain 3.5 to 5.5 meq/L or 10 to 14 dKH) and calcium level should be maintained between 400 and 450 ppm, using Kent Turbo Calcium, Concentrated Liquid Calcium, or Kalkwasser Mix. Test calcium & alkalinity and adjust the recommended dose for your particular system! Do not exceed 1/2 ml of this product per gallon per 12 hour period. Daily addition of calcium along with this product will yield optimum results, particularly when trying to accelerate coralline algae growth! If you have trouble maintaining calcium or buffer level, check to see that the salt mix you are using has seawater level of magnesium. To save money and increase dissolvability, some manufacturers of popular newer salts have included only half the level of magnesium necessary in their sea salt mixes, resulting in low calcium solubility and poor buffering! If magnesium is low, use Kent Tech M Magnesium.

Regular water changes are recommended. Kent Marine Essential Elements and Coral-Vite should be used simultaneously with the calcium supplement you are using and the Pro Buffer dKH to replace those minerals lost in protein skimming and filtration and used up by corals and other invertebrates. Tanks with heavy coral populations require additional strontium to that which is in the Coral-Vite. Use Strontium & Molybdenum Supplement or Turbo Strontium for this. Tech I is our new timed release iodine supplement. You will notice increased size, growth and general health of soft corals with its use. Macro algae will require the Iron supplement, as well. Live corals require strong lighting of proper spectrum and immaculately clean systems.

Deionized water containing carbonate, bicarbonate, sulfate and borate salts with trace minerals.
