Product Detail

Item#: SC3083
Mfg#:
Product Name: Alkaline Buffer 300g
Category: Additives*
Subcategory: pH, gH, & kH
Manufacturer: Seachem
Alkaline Regulator adjusts pH to the alkaline range (7.1-7.6) and supports the establishment of the optimal environment for all alkaline acclimated species (e.g. bosemani, various other rainbows etc.). For further freshwater environment enhancement, use Fresh Trace to restore the proper level of trace elements required by thriving, healthy freshwater community fish.

DIRECTIONS: Use 1 level teaspoon (7 g) for every 40 L (10 gallons*) daily until intended pH is reached. Thereafter, use once a month or with water changes as required to maintain pH. To lower pH, use Neutral Regulator. To target a particular pH use in combination with Neutral Regulator following the chart on the bottle (also on Seachem's website). This chart assumes the use of unbuffered water (RO or DI). If water is already buffered use the chart as a starting guide. Use Prime to dechlorinate tap water before doing a water change.
Alkaline Regulator Support

Q What is the difference between Alkaline Regulator and Alkaline Buffer?

A: The difference is that Alkaline Buffer is a carbonate/bicarbonate based buffer and Alkaline Regulator is a phosphate based buffer. High phosphate levels can promote algae growth so it is often a better choice to use a phosphate free buffer like Alkaline Buffer. The only drawback to a non-phosphate buffer is that there tends to be more pH fluctuation owing to CO2 equilibrium. Phosphate buffers lock the pH in quite well and hold it there.

Q: I try to keep my water between 6.8 and 7.2 pH so I'm not aiming for a perfect 7.0. Why wouldn't I use your Neutral Regulator instead of your alkaline products?

A: You certainly can use Neutral Regulator if you're trying to get to around 7. Alkaline Buffer and Alkaline Regulator are indicated for use if you are trying to get a pH above 7.
