Seachem Alkaline Buffer is a water treatment designed for the planted aquarium or areas with very hard water where phosphate buffers may lead to algae or cloudiness issues. This product, which contains no phosphate, serves as a non-phosphate buffer to increase pH and buffers when used alongside Seachem Acid Buffer.

Key Features:

  • Raises pH to a range of 7.2-8.5.
  • Specifically formulated for use in planted aquariums.
  • Converts carbonate alkalinity into available CO2, enhancing the freshwater environment.

Directions for Use:

  1. To increase pH, add 1 teaspoon (6g) of Alkaline Buffer for every 80 liters of water daily until the desired pH is reached. This dose raises alkalinity by approximately 1 meq/L (2.8 dKH).
  2. For precise dosing, consider using the Seachem Digital Spoon Scale.

Adjusting pH Gradually:

  • If you need to adjust pH gradually or if the water is soft or poorly buffered, combine Seachem Alkaline Buffer with Seachem Acid Buffer. The suggested ratio table below can guide you in using these two products together to target a specific pH:
Acid Buffer Alkaline Buffer pH
1 1.3 6.5
1 2.0 7.0
1 2.5 7.5
1 4.0 8.0

Remember to consult this table for the recommended ratio based on your target pH. Seachem emphasizes customer education and support, providing quality aquarium care products backed by science.
