Seachem Alkaline Buffer
Seachem Alkaline Buffer is a non–phosphate buffer to raise pH and buffers between 7.2 and 8.5. It is gentle, safe, and enhances the freshwater environment. These buffers are designed for the planted aquarium or for very hard water where phosphate buffers may pose an algae or cloudiness problem.
To increase pH, use 1 teaspoon (6g) for every 80L daily until desired pH is reached (this dose raises alkalinity by about 1 meq/L (2.8 dKH)). For precise dosing, use the Seachem Digital Spoon Scale.
In order to adjust pH gradually, use Alkaline Buffer with Acid Buffer. When using Alkaline Buffer & Acid Buffer together to target a specific pH, utilize the suggested ratio chart.
