Seachem Laboratories Acid Buffer Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

Seachem Acid Buffer™ is a non-phosphate buffer to lower pH and buffer with Alkaline Buffer™. Both buffers are designed for the planted aquarium or for very hard water where phosphate buffers may pose an algae or cloudiness problem. Acid Buffer™ lowers pH and buffers between 5.0 and 8.0 when used with Alkaline Buffer™. As Acid Buffer™ lowers pH it converts carbonate alkalinity (KH) into available CO2. It may also be used to safely lower pH in marine water. A 300 g bottle treats over 900 gallons.

Seachem moved into a state of the art 110,000 square foot facility in Madison, Georgia marking their 25th anniversary in the industry in 2005.

Comments: Used during a water change in conjunction with Neutral Regulator. Acid Buffer has lowered PH level under 7.8 it's day 2 and counting. Looking for 7.0, I will try a second dose on day 3 if PH is no lower.

Comments: I've been trying to lower my 60 gallon's PH forever. Not even after pressurized CO2was added. I just discovered this product recently. We have 7.6 PH here in LA. I use this with peat granules and it lowers the PH down to a perfect 6.0 for my discus and angelfish. Tried using Seachem discus buffer before and that created algae bloom. Great product, just make sure you follow directions and not overdose. This is not snakeoil people!

Comments: I have been successfully operating freshwater tanks for over 20 years. This product, used in the small amounts recommended, is THE BEST fix for tap water with higher pH. It contains no phosphates, so there is no nasty algae bloom and has never clouded the tank water!!! Very safe & dependable. BUT, to the novice, still check pH every week to be safe. Outstanding product. Have been using Acid Buffer for almost 12 years now!!!!!
