Seachem Reef Buffer pH Increaser 500g/1.1lb
Reef Buffer is intended primarily for use in a reef system where the maintenance of a pH of 8.3 is often difficult.

When used as directed Reef Buffer will raise the pH of your reef system to 8.3 without fear of accidentally overshooting the pH to a dangerous level.

Reef Buffer will also raise carbonate alkalinity.

Reef Buffer is a blended product and is not just sodium carbonate.

Reef Builder should be used to raise alkalinity when pH is not a problem.

Use Seachem's MultiTest: Marine pH & Alkalinity to check pH and total alkalinity.

DIRECTIONS: Check pH and alkalinity before use. Use 5g (1 level teaspoon) for every 150L (40 gallons*) to raise pH by about 0.1 pH units (this will also raise alkalinity by about 0.5 meq/L). Dissolve in at least one cup of freshwater, then add to the tank. The pH of natural sea water is 8.25-8.30. In a well established reef system pH adjustment may be necessary biweekly to semiweekly. Dosing requirements will vary, but do not exceed the recommended dose without checking your pH and alkalinity (alkalinity should not exceed 6 meq/L). If an alkalinity of 6 meq/L has been reached and a pH of at least 8.20 has not been attained or substantial cloudiness that does not clear within 15 minutes is encountered, then the system is not ionically balanced. To restore ionic balance perform a water change or adjust the magnesium and calcium levels to approximately 3:1 Mg:Ca (calcium does not need to exceed 400 mg/L). DO NOT OVERDOSE: Excess alkalinity may enhance the loss of calcium, magnesium, and strontium. Do not directly mix with any calcium, magnesium, or strontium supplement.
