set of 3 contains 1kg of each element, 1kg KH buffer - 1kg Magnesium, - 1kg Calcium +
Carbonate hardness or buffering capacity is the measure of alkalinity in the aquarium water and the ability of the system to prevent pH swings. Over time carbonate hardness can be depleted and this additive allows the user to restore the hardness to optimum levels
3g (two thirds of a teaspoon) will raise Alkalinity levels by approximately 1dKH in 100 litres of salt water.
Target Alkalinity levels are around 8 to 10 dKH using a good quality reliable test kit. 7-8 if running ultra low nutrient systems
Dissolve the required amount into a litre of Reverse Osmosis Water, mix well and slowly add to your tank in an area of high flow, preferably over a period of an hour or so using a drip line or peristaltic pump. Alternatively add to your evaporation top up water and top up as normal.
It is not recommended to increase Alkalinity levels by more than 1dKH per day.
CAUTION: Do not add more than the stated dose, overdosing can have adverse effects on your tank water pH causing it to drop to dangerous levels.
Contains Sodium Bicarbonate
