ECO Buffer dKH

Description: Increases buffering capacity in all reef systems.

Type: Marine Supplement

Main Points:

• Adjusts the pH in marine systems to 8.0-8.4

• Raises alkalinity to 7-8 dKH

•Phosphate and Nitrate Free


ECO BUFFER dKH is a specially formulated pH and carbonate alkalinity buffer designed to adjust the pH of the saltwater aquarium to a range of 8.0-8.4,and raise carbonate alkalinity to 7-8 dKH. Maintaining carbonate alkalinity at 7-8 dKH will prevent the pH from dropping to below 8.0.

Directions for use:

Before using ECO BUFFER dKH, test the carbonate alkalinity (dKH) using a reliable test kit. If the carbonate alkalinity is below 7 dKH, do the following: In a separate container, mix one packet (300 grams) of ECO BUFFER dKH powder in 1 U.S. gallon (3.8 liter) of deionized/reverse osmosis freshwater to form a stock solution. Add the stock solution to the aquarium system at a dosage of1 ounce (30 ml) per 30 U.S. gallons (50 ml/200 liters) per day until a carbonate alkalinity of 7 dKH is reached. To maintain this level, repeat the recommended dosage weekly.

Considerations for use:

Maintaining a calcium concentration of 420-430 ppm, a magnesium level of 1300-1400 ppm and carbonate alkalinity at 7 dKH will ensure the optimal growth of stony corals, Tridacna sp. giant clams and calcareous algae.


For aquarium use only. Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption.
