Product Information

Seachem Gold Buffer 4 kg (8.8 lbs)

Seachem Gold Buffer depending on dosage, Gold Buffer raises pH and buffers between 7.2 and 7.8. It is gentle, safe, and enhances the freshwater environment. It is compatible with all other Seachem buffers. Contains sodium, potassium, magnesium, and other bicarbonate salts. 50 g treats 72 gallons.

DIRECTIONS: Use 1 level teaspoon (7 g) for every 40 L (10 gallons) daily until desired pH is reached. If water is soft or not well buffered, use half dose. Gold Buffer will slowly raise pH. It will not lower pH. It may be added directly to the aquarium at any time. It preferentially buffers at pH 7.8, but can manage any pH between 7.2 and 7.8. Use Prime to remove chlorine and other harmful chemicals from new water. When setting up a new tank or preparing water change water, use Gold Salt along with Gold Buffer to create the optimum goldfish environment.

About Seachem
The pet industry is not the same as it was 26 years ago when Seachem began in a basement in Stone Mountain, Georgia. Today, the most competitive companies are being bought up systematically and added to the shopping baskets of pet conglomerates that seek to get their foot into every fish bowl, dog door, and bird cage the pet industry has to offer.

This trend is not itself inherently bad or evil, however the resulting bottom line refocusing of these formerly independent companies is contributing to a troubling loss in the industry for the consumer: a loss of choice and knowledge. Our product lines are driven by our passion for the hobby and not necessarily by what is going to yield the highest profit margin. Of course this is a business, but it is a business built upon peoples passions. Nobody understands the passion and the problems of hobbyists more than other hobbyists.

We are not so high-minded, however, as to ignore the significance of making a profit, but we have never believed and will never believe that it should be done so at the expense of quality, customer satisfaction, or choice. At what point does the bottom line supersede innovation, quality, experience, or customer service? When should we sell two products when one will work better? When should we use cheaper ingredients at the expense of quality? When should we use inconclusive data as a selling point? When should we discontinue a valuable product line because it is not a top seller? We do not know, because we have never been there; and if we have our way, we never will.

Keeping aquariums can certainly be relaxing, but it is not always easy; so just in case you have questions along the way, Seachems technical support and customer service are available by phone, e-mail, and a variety of internet discussion boards including our own. At Seachem we believe the best customer is an educated one, so we welcome dialogue with our customers. We have over 100+ years of combined experience in the hobby to draw on and Ph.D. chemists on staff who are available to answer your more challenging queries. We encourage all of our customers to learn more about our products, and to really sea the difference. It is our sincerest hope that this website will not only educate you on our products but also about the hobby in general.
