Maintain the health of your aquatic inhabitants
by keeping the water conditioned to an appropriate level with the help of the Seachem Reef Builder from Pet Store
. This solution is available in a one-kilogram container, which will last use for several months. It can be used to treat all quantities of water, regardless if you have been using fresh, tap, or salt water.
The Seachem Reef Builder works by keeping your water's pH level balanced. For best results, this product comes with a buffer for both acid and alkaline, which guarantees that nothing in your tank will hinder the growth and the well-being of your fish and marine life. It seeks out any abnormality in the acidity and the alkalinity of your water, which is the main reason why fish get stressed.
The Seachem Reef Builder is also quite beneficial for your corals. This is because a balanced pH level will encourage them to thrive properly, and it will allow them to breed and spawn without any hindrance that changes in the water will bring.
It is now possible for you to take better care of your fish and reef life by using the Seachem Reef Builder. Without this, you can never ensure the optimal growth and health of your aquatic inhabitants.
Seachem Reef Builder ™ raises carbonate alkalinity without immediately impacting on pH. With long term use there will be a tendency to stabilize at pH 8.3. Carbonates and calcium are essential to all coral growth. If either becomes deficient, coral growth will cease, followed by a rapid decline in coral health. Used as directed, Reef Builder™ will not deplete calcium, magnesium, or strontium which usually tend to precipitate with increasing alkalinity. Reef Builder™ and Reef Buffer™ may be used together. Use Reef Builder™ to raise carbonate alkalinity without affecting pH. Use Reef Buffer™ to raise carbonate alkalinity and pH. 1 Kg treats 64,000 L (16,000 gallons).
DIRECTIONS: BEGINNER: Use half a level teaspoon per 150 L (40 gallons) twice a week. Dissolve in at least one cup of freshwater. Check alkalinity every 2 weeks and adjust dose or frequency accordingly. ADVANCED: Check alkalinity, then follow dosing regimen above until alkalinity is adjusted to 4–5 meq/L. Each dose will raise alkalinity by about 0.25 meq/L. Size or frequency of dose can be adjusted, but do not exceed 1 meq/L per day. Thereafter, use as required to maintain alkalinity. EXPERT: After determining the alkalinity consumption rate, set up a continuous drip system. Use the following formula to determine how much to add to your top-off water: t=0.05va (t=teaspoons to add to top off water, v=volume of tank in gallons, a=amount to raise alkalinity in meq/L). For example, if you want to raise your alkalinity by 1 meq/L in a 50 gallon tank, then you would add 0.05x50x1=2.5 teaspoons into the top-off water. HINTS: Use MultiTest:™ Marine pH & Alkalinity to measure total alkalinity.
