Alkalinity in the aquarium aids in coral calcification and skeletal formation. Keeping alkalinity in stable parameters also prevents pH swings, burnt coral tips, coral bleaching and tissue necrosis. Aquaforest Alkalinity will supply constant carbonate hardness level in reef aquariums, keeping an accurate level of carbonate hardness for these reasons.

A sudden drop of carbonates concentration in the tank may also entirely stop the nitrification process, and is recommended to be kept at a KH level of 6.5-8.0 dKH in reef tanks.

Dosage and Use:

  • Dissolve 1.28 cups of the product in 1 US gal of deionized water.
  • 100 ml of KH Buffer solution raises KH level in 100 l (26.4 gallons) of water by 2.6 dKH
  • Before applying KH Buffer solution into the water, it is recommended to run a water test to check current water parameters.
  • Dosage should be determined by the water tests results and daily corals’ consumption.
  • The product is also suitable for casual use for one-time KH level raising

Further tips and information:

  • Aquaforest does not recommend raising KH level by more than 0.5 dKH per day.
  • In order to maintain ionic balance Calcium, Magnesium and Reef Mineral Salt should also be applied.
  • Contains NaHCO3.

Manufacturer Info

Aquaforest got its start in 1995 manufacturing substrates and aquatic plant fertilizers for zoos, aquariums, and professional plant farms. They soon expanded into farming their own aquatic plants, fish & corals, and invested heavily into research for developing their own sea salt, foods, and supplements to maintain those farms. Aquaforest’s products became available for retail in 2011 after many years of honing and perfecting their craft. The entire range – including test kits, supplements, salts, foods, and more-- has gained significant attention from marine aquarists worldwide.
