Seachem Acid Buffer

Product Description

Acid Buffer is a non-phosphate buffer to lower pH and buffer with Alkaline Buffer. Both buffers are designed for the planted aquarium or for very hard water where phosphate buffers may pose an algae or cloudiness problem. Acid Buffer lowers pH and buffers between 5.0 and 8.0 when used with Alkaline Buffer. As Acid Buffer lowers pH it converts carbonate alkalinity (KH) into available CO2. It may also be used to safely lower pH in marine water. Sizes: 300 g

Why It's Different

What distinguishes Acid Buffer from other buffers is that it does not contain phosphates. This makes it ideal for the planted aquarium, where excess phosphate could contribute to undesirable algae growth.

Directions

To lower pH, use 1/4 teaspoon (2g) for every 80 L (20 gallons) daily until desired pH is reached (this dose lowers alkalinity by about 0.2 meq/L (0.6 dKH)). Larger doses may be required in very hard (KH) or alkaline waters. In order to adjust pH gradually, or if water is soft or not well buffered, use Acid Buffer with Alkaline Buffer. When using Alkaline Buffer & Acid Buffer together to target a specific pH, utilize the suggested ratio chart. This chart is based on use in RO or RO/DI water and ratios may need to be adjusted for use in tap water. HINT: First determine the amount of Alkaline Buffer needed for the volume of water. This should be determined based upon your desired alkalinity (KH). Then, divide by the number in the middle column to obtain the correct amount of Acid Buffer required.

Use these ratios to target pH
Acid Buffer Alkaline Buffer pH
1 : 1.0 6.0
1 : 1.3 6.5
1 : 2.0 7.0
1 : 2.5 7.5
1 : 4.0 8.0
