Keep your discus healthy by avoiding pH level fluctuations in your aquarium water. Simply use an appropriate buffer system such as the Seachem Discus Buffer from Pet Store
and maintain the ideal water quality that your discus needs to grow and thrive well.
This buffer creates the water quality that the natural environment of discus has. This is characterized as having a low pH level and a low general hardness of water. The discus buffer adjusts the acidity of the water and fixes it to stay at 5.8 to 6.8 by supplying the water with the salt ingredients that contains trace elements that diminishes the pH of water. The discus buffer softens the water by removing calcium, magnesium, and other similar caions through precipitation. The discus buffer is free from phosphate and carbonates that may harm your discus.
The SeaChem Discus Buffer comes in 1 kilogram bottle which is enough to treat over 800 gallons of aquatic water
four times. This is because 250 gallons of the buffer can treat aquariums carrying over 800 gallons of water. The buffer can be used effectively together with the Neutral Regulator to maintain the right pH level for discus to thrive. This discuss buffer is recommended for freshwater use only.
Seachem Discus Buffer ™ adjusts water to any acid pH in the range of 5.86.8. It is completely compatible with Neutral Regulator™ and may be combined with it in fixed ratios to yield a preset pH. It is totally phosphate based and is free of carbonates. It will also soften the water by removing calcium, magnesium, and other divalent cations as precipitates. A 250 g bottle treats over 800 gallons. Freshwater use only.
