Seachem Marine Buffer
*Safely Raises PH to 8.3
*Treats 4000 gallons.
*Marine Buffer will safely raise Marine (or African Cichlid) pH to 8.3. It will not raise pH above 8.3 even if inadvertently overdosed. Marin Buffer is a blended product and is not just sodium bicarbonate or sodium carbonate, commonly sold as a substitute. Such products can raise pH to dangerous levels if not used properly. Marine Buffer contains sodium, magnesium, calcium, strontium, and potassium salts of carbonate, bicarbonate, chloride, sulfate, and borate. Use a pH and KH test kit to check pH and alkalinity.
This is the exact product as Malawi Buffer as both increase KH and when used full strength (or even overdosed) will not raise pH past 8.2-8.3
This product can be safely used for raising kH (& pH) in freshwater as well and is preferable and safer to baking soda, especially in community aquariums where baking soda can change pH too quickly
