Seachem Alkaline Buffer Description

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 and 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.

Dosage:
300 grams (10.5 oz): Treats 860 Gallons
600 grams (1.3 lbs): Treats 1,720 Gallons
1.2 kg (2.6 lbs): Treats 3,440 Gallons
4 kg (8.8 lbs): Treats 11,640 Gallons

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

Excellent pH Buffer

Replaces a long-time alternative that had become ineffective. This is an inexpensive and effective product.
