Brightwell Aquatics Alkalin8.3-P, KH buffer powder is a highly effective alkalinity-increasing (buffer) powdered blend useful for all marine fish and reef aquaria for pH stability.
Product was formulated by a marine scientist as a water supplement to help achieve and maintain alkalinity in saltwater aquariums between desired range of 7 - 12 dKH. Alkalinity, also referred to as carbonate hardness or buffering capacity, quantifies the stability of pH in a solution, such as aquarium water.
Alkalin8.3-P provides a source of carbonates, the mineral secreted by reef-building organisms as skeletal material - working to raise pH until 8.3 is reached, at which point the pH remains unchanged and the alkalinity alone increases.
It is important to determine aquarium alkalinity with an accurate test kit prior to supplementing with Alkalin8.3-P. Do not add this product directly to an aquarium without first diluting in water as directed by manufacturer instructions.
Contains 250g, 8.8 oz. of Bicarbonate, Carbonate and Borate Salts in a powdered blend.
