Seachem Alkaline Buffer

FREE shipping on orders $49+

Seachem Alkaline Buffer raises the pH and alkalinity (KH) of your aquarium water, and holds it steady between 7.2 and 8.5 - an ideal range for most freshwater environments. Alkaline Buffer is safe, gentle, and phosphate-free to reduce the risk of algae or cloudiness.

  • Raises pH & increases alkalinity
  • Buffers pH between 7.2 and 8.5
  • Great for planted aquariums or very hard water


Seachem Alkaline Buffer is a sodium bicarbonate-based buffer. This makes it slightly less stable than phosphate buffers, but better suited for planted aquariums where adding more phosphates would lead to an algae problem.

Directions: To increase pH, use 1 teaspoon (7g) for every 80 L (20 gallons) 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.

FAQ:

  • Q: What is the difference between Neutral Regulator, Discus Buffer, Alkaline Buffer, and Acid Buffer?
    A: Neutral Regulator and Discus Buffer are phosphate-based buffers providing a very strong and stable buffering system. Alkaline Buffer and Acid Buffer are non-phosphate buffers, which although less stable than a phosphate buffer, are ideal for the planted aquarium where high phosphate levels would lead to an algae problem.
  • Q: Is Alkaline Buffer a sodium bicarbonate?
    A: Yes, it is a sodium bicarbonate-based buffer.
