AF KH Buffer
$24.95 – $59.95 inc GST
An agent for maintaining constant carbonate hardness level in reef aquariums. Accurate level of carbonate hardness is essential for stabilising pH levels. Sudden drop of carbonates concentration in the tank may entirely stop the nitrification process. Recommended level of KH in reef aquaria is 6,5-8,0 dKH. Dosage: dissolve 80 g of KH Buffer in 1000 ml RODI water. Dosage should be determined by the water tests results and daily corals’ consumption. Before applying KH Buffer solution into the water, it is recommended to run a water test to check current water parameters.
100 ml of KH Buffer solution raises KH level in 100 l of water by 2,6 dKH.
The product is also suitable for casual use for one-time KH level raising. 10 g of KH Buffer in 100 l of water raises KH level by about 3,3 dKH (Alk. 1,18 meg/l). We do not recommend raising KH level by more than 0,5 dKH per day. In order to maintain ionic balance Calcium, Magnesium and Reef Mineral Salt should also be applied. Contains NaHCO3. US: Dissolve 1.28 cups of the product in 1 US gal of deionized water.
