SeaChem Discus Buffer ™ adjusts water to any acid pH in the range of 5.8–6.8. It is completely compatible with Neutral Regulator™ and may be combined with it in fixed ratios to yield a preset pH. It is totally phosphate based and is free of carbonates. It will also soften the water by removing calcium, magnesium, and other divalent cations as precipitates.

discus buffer

buffer works excellent, for a 30 gallon water change i combine 3 tsp r/o right, 3 tsp neutral regulator, and then 3 tsp discus buffer about 1/2 hour apart. 1 tsp discus essential (kent) for a PH of 6.7 that my discus love and PH stays the same until next water change.

PERFORMS AS ADVERTISED

Discus Buffer works EXACTLY as advertised; you won't find a more effective mechanism to adjust and buffer a stable pH. **RECOMMENDED FOR UN-PLANTED AQUARIUMS** Both Discus Buffer and Neutral Regulator, designed by Seachem to work together, use PHOSPHATE-based buffers. In an unplanted freshwater aquarim, phosphates do not pose any issues. In a planted tank, however, high phosphate levels lead to undesirable algae blooms. If you have a planted aquarium, use Acid Buffer and Alkaline Buffer rather than Discus Buffer and Neutral Regulator.

Does what is says!

I have used this product for a year now, 2008. I use it in conjuction with SeaChem's Neutral Regulator for a 20Gal freshwater tank. The pH of my tap water is up there at 7.4 and I like to keep the tank's pH at 6.8. I achieve this by mixing 1 tsp of the Regulator with 3 tsp's of the Discus Buffer. The pH holds at 6.8 for a two-week duration (14 days).

Discus Buffer

I purchased 2 bottles due to the fact it is hard to find at the lfs I looked at and was unsure of how fast I was going to go through it with the size of my tank(175 gallons w/ 50% changes every 5-7 days).I was pretty impressed that it dropped my ph from 7.3 to 6.4 with a little more than the recommended beginning dosage.I just might have enough to last awhile.Only gave it 4 stars because I've used it a short time and I'm not sure how long it will last the water changes.
