E.S.V. Component No, 1 - ALKALINITY

B-Ionic Calcium Buffer is the original, unique, easy to use, two-component liquid supplement system. When using equal volumes of each component, the aquarist can easily maintain calcium and alkalinity levels with no mixing powders, disruption of ionic balance, or addition of organic chemicals. B-Ionic Calcium Buffer System does not contain phosphates or nitrates. In addition to supplying highly concentrated calcium and carbonate alkalinity required for calcification, B-Ionic Calcium Buffer System also provides all other important major, minor, and trace elements in the proper ratios to duplicate the composition of natural seawater. As a result, B-Ionic Calcium Buffer System will help restore inorganic ions lost from protein skimming and help maintain the ionic balance of the aquarium water. Starting daily dosage is 1 ml per 4 gallons of aquarium capacity.

These gallon-sized bottles are concentrated so they will need to be diluted with RO/DI (or distilled) water before use. Contains 1gal bottle of Component No. 1 - Alkalinity.

REVIEW
I've been using the ESV products for more than 10 years on my reef tank, but have always used more of the Alk than the CA buffer.

REVIEW
Been using B-Ionic since it came out and they are clearly the best product for reefers adding two part. Mixing is a pain but we'll worth it when you can get large quantities for a great price.

REVIEW
I have been using B-Ionic for over 4 years now. It is more concentrated than some other 2-part mixes out there. This means that the contents of the jug go further. Buying in the 1 gallon jug makes using B-Ionic more affordable too.
