Product: Brightwell Aquatics Florin pH- 250ml
Lowers the pH safely in freshwater aquariums with plants and communities . It can also be used in marine aquariums.
Gradually lowers the alkalinity ( carbonate hardness ) of tap water and aquarium.
Useful to lower the pH of the aquarium when it is necessary to establish the conditions of acidity in water biotope aquariums , simulating the arrival of the rainy season , or to stimulate spawning in fish species from environments with low pH.
Contains no substances based buffer phosphates; does not increase the nutrients phosphate-based or nitrogen in the aquarium.
The needs in terms of water chemistry of many interesting species of fish and freshwater invertebrates predict that the pH of the water in the tank is kept below 7.0 ( acid was then ) , and this is especially true for those organizations from the regions wooded, with water deficient in minerals , such as many streams and rivers of South and Central America , West Africa, Southeast Asia, and parts of Australasia.
The difficulties facing many aquarists who wish to keep these particular species in captivity is often tied to adjust the pH within a proper range when the water used for the exchange is rich in dissolved minerals (especially those that increase the alkalinity , such as the calcium carbonate ) and / or when a fund has been used for aquariums that releases substances such as calcite or dolomite . The best first step is to use purified water when you make changes in the water, using ricostituendola with mineralizing salts adequate to achieve the proper TDS ( for topping up evaporated water , however, do not use reverse osmosis water remineralized ), it is recommended to replace the bottom with a inert . However, after making these changes , the pH may still be too high compared to what you want. Florin - use pH as indicated, lead to a gradual and safe lowering of the pH . The changes in pH should always be done in a very gradual manner to avoid the stress of the inhabitants of the aquarium should be consulted and a reliable source of information about the needs in terms of water chemistry of the species housed before making any change in pH. The alkalinity ( carbonate hardness ) should always be monitored and adjusted as needed. Florin pH - fli is safe for all freshwater aquariums , including those with plants and invertebrates ( such as shrimp and other crustaceans , snails and other molluscs , etc. . ) .
Instructions and Guidelines
Do not use Florin pH in an aquarium without having first determined the pH and alkalinity with an accurate test . Shake the bottle before each use . Read all instructions before using.
Adding in the aquarium : Delivers up to 1 ml of Florin pH - each 37.9 liters ( 10 gallons) of water every 2 hours until the pH has dropped and became stable at the desired value , note that the velocity of circulation of the water in the tub will have relevance in determining at what speed the active ingredients will change the pH ( circulation faster lowers the time required ) , and that the stabilization of the pH can take up to 24 hours in extreme cases ( most probably will occur in less than 2 hours) . Not having to change the pH of more than 0.1 per 30 minutes. Just Florin pH - aggiutno is in the tank, the alkalinity decreases , leading to a pH less stable and possibly lower. In conditions of alkaline water , it is common that the pH falls temporarily , and then rises slightly after the addition of pH - Florin ; this is simply due to the interactions between the active components and the buffer molecules present in the water and decrease gradually as the ' alkalinity decreases. At that point the pH will change easily with the addition of pH - Florin , then precautions should be taken to ensure that the pH does not collapse under the safety threshold . Consult a reliable source of information to learn about the needs of the pH of the organisms housed in the aquarium and adjust the parameters as necessary to obtain the desired values. The alkalinity can be increased through the use of substances buffer ( " buffer " ) such as Florin Delta KH + ; this will stabilize the pH and may increase slightly .
Adding in tap water and / or osmosis : adjust the alkalinity of the water with a buffer ( as Florin Delta KH +), once stabilized alkalinity , add Florin pH - until they both reached the desired level of pH . Finally, adjust the TDS of the water (eg Remineralīz or Remineralīz -P or with Florin Delta GH + for aquaria with plants ) to the desired values. When the water temperature is about the same as that of the aquarium , add it in the bathtub.
Warning : Contains sulfuric acid buffered , the contents may be corrosive and / or irritating. Do not inhale vapors. Keep out of reach of children. Not for human use. First Aid: If swallowed , rinse mouth and drink water or milk. Do not induce vomiting . In case of contact with eyes or skin , flush with water for at least 15 minutes. Contact a physician immediately.
