- Pure sodium carbonate
- Professional reef supplement
- Raises alkalinity in reef tanks
- Convenient/economical bulk buffer for experienced marine/reef aquarists
Monitoring and maintaining alkalinity is an important part of helping to stabilize water chemistry values, resulting in better coral, coralline algae and invertebrate growth and health.
Treats: Add one teaspoon (5 g) per 65 gallons to raise alkalinity by approximately 1 dKH. Dissolve appropriate amount in RO/DI water, slowly add to a high flow area, ideally into a sump. Monitor pH while dosing. Avoid the immediate impact of pH change to more than +/* 0.2. Re-test and repeat dose until the desired level is reached.
Note: Due to the variation of granular size, conversion between volume and weight of powdered products are approximate; as a precaution, dose less than the calculated amount and measure the effect before adding the total amount.
Usage Notes: Always test alkalinity levels prior to use. Alkalinity levels found in natural seawater is between 7-12 dKH. Due to the sensitivity of marine organisms, it is not recommended to raise alkalinity by more than 1 dKH (0.36 meq/l) per 24 hours.
CAUTION: Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Wash hands after handling.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry place with lid tightly sealed. Keep out of reach of children.
