Product: EQUO Stabilo KH+ - A compound of buffer salts
The importance of the pH level in the maintenance of a healthy and balanced aquarium environment is well-known, both in fresh-water and salt-water tanks. The factors determining variations and sudden changes are many.
Hard water with a high level of carbon is generally more stable regarding pH levels. The levels should never go below 3°dKH in fresh-water aquariums or 8°dKH in salt-water aquariums.
As plant metabolism consumes carbon and likewise bacterial metabolism, over time, there is a gradual reduction in the carbonate hardness. Équo has therefore created STABILO KH+, an alkaline compound, which enables the water to maintain a stable level of carbonate hardness.
A compound of buffer salts
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
A 13gr sachet of STABILO KH+ dissolved in 100litres of water, increases the degree of carbonate hardness by approximately 4 degrees.
Avoid dissolving the salts directly into the aquarium.
Remove 500ml of water from the aquarium and dissolve the required quantity of salt. Slowly pour the solution obtained back into the pump container. DO NOT POUR THE SOLUTION INTO THE FILTER CONTAINER. Do not increase the level by more than 2° dKH in any 24-hour period.
As there may be a waste margin of 2°dKH in aquariums containing carbon dioxide and other saline solutions, it is advisable to start with a half dose and to check the level of carbonate hardness after one hour using the appropriate KH test, before proceeding.
