Multiple forms of bio active & bio available high purity carbonates. Alkalinity or carbonate hardness is directly associated with the beneficial growth of all living corals. It also plays an important role in maintaining proper pH in natural sea water (NSW). Alkalinity or carbonate hardness is found at 7.5 or 2.67 meq/L at 77F / 25C at a salinity of 35 parts per thousand (ppt) or a specific gravity of 1.026 in NSW. Buffer + dKH GeneratorTM will automatically adjust marine aquarium water to the proper pH of 8.4 and increase alkalinity or carbonate hardness. Buffer + dKH GeneratorTM is a unique blend of highly concentrated multiple forms of pH balanced, bio-availableTM, bio-activeTM, high purity compounds. Multiple forms of ingredients are employed as they found in NSW. Buffer + dKH GeneratorTM assists: Ca++, Mg++, K+, SO4-and other ions with the coloration and growth of corals, sponges, sea anemones, marine fish and captive marine organisms. ACPTM Buffer + dKH Generator® is the perfect one step pH adjuster and alkalinity builder. Maintain pH at 8.4 with alkalinity or KH (carbonate hardness) about 7.5-8 / 2.67-2.85 meq/L for sea water duplication. Ideal for marine fish and various sea plants and algae. Maintain pH at 8.4 with an alkalinity or KH (carbonate hardness) about 8.4-9.5 or 3.-3.4 meq/L for reef aquariums. Avoid adjusting alkalinity over KH over 10 / 3.6 meq/L. Prior to adding Buffer + dKH GeneratorTM, test for calcium and magnesium. Adjust with ACPTM #1 # # 3 if necessary. Calcium must be between 400-460 ppm. Magnesium must be between 1290-1350 ppm. Use one cap (6 ml) for each 25 US gallons of marine aquarium water. Add enough to bring pH to 8.3-8.4. Add more to adjust alkalinity or carbonate hardness to the recommend level.
