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.
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.
