Seachem Liquid Acid Buffer, 20L (5.3gal.)
Liquid Acid Buffer is a non-phosphate buffer to lower pH and buffer with Liquid Alkaline Buffer. Both buffers are designed for the planted aquarium or for very hard water where phosphate buffers may pose an algae or cloudiness problem. Liquid Acid Buffer lowers pH and buffers between 5.0 and 8.0 when used with Liquid Alkaline Buffer. As Liquid Acid Buffer lowers pH it converts carbonate alkalinity into available CO2.
DIRECTIONS: Use 1 capful (5 mL) for every 10 L (2.5 gallons*) daily until desired pH is reached (this dose lowers alkalinity by about 0.08 meq/L (0.3 dKH)). If water is soft or not well buffered, use with Liquid Alkaline Buffer (see below). Larger doses may be required in very hard (KH) alkaline waters.
TIPS: Liquid Acid Buffer will not raise pH. It may be added directly to the aquarium at any time. If using with RO or DI water for a water change, then use with Liquid Alkaline Buffer at a fixed ratio (see chart) to set the desired pH. Once pH is set add water to aquarium as soon as possible to avoid pH fluctuations.
