||Powdered pH buffer and alkalinity builder for marine aquariums
||Properly adjusts saltwater aquarium pH to optimum levels
||Builds aquarium carbonate hardness levels crucial for reef aquariums
Specially formulated pH buffer and carbonate hardness (KH) builder. Adjusts the pH in saltwater aquariums to the optimum range of 8.0 - 8.3 while building the KH. Mixes clear with little or no cloudiness or precipitation. 1,000 grams treats 5,600 gallons.
Dissolve one teaspoon of Superbuffer-dKH in a glass of fresh water. Add directly to tank or sump for each 20-30 gallons (80 liters) of tank capacity each day until the desired pH and alkalinity (carbonate hardness or KH) are reached. Wait 1 hour to re-measure alkalinity, but wait 24 hours for pH to stabilize, before re-measuring (full pH increase and stabilization may take up to 48 hours!). This product is designed for reefs and may be used in fish only marine systems also.
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, with 3.4 meq/L (9.5 dKH) being optimum. (Fish only tanks should maintain 3.5 to 4.5 meq/L (or 10 to 12 dKH.) After target pH and alkalinity are reached, use at 2 week intervals to maintain values.
Carbonate, bicarbonate and borate salts of sodium, magnesium, and potassium.
