Product: OceanLife KH Buffer 500ml
The Berliner bases its success on the use of live rock , strong lighting, abundant water movement and filtration entrusted to a skimmer . In this way it creates an environment that simulates what happens in the natural reef , or the removal of pollutants by surface- skimmer and a reduction in non-polar compounds pollutants by live rocks (which are home to an internal collection of microorganisms able to complete the nitrogen cycle ) .
Calcium and carbonates are used by all the animals of the aquarium for the formation of aragonite , material component the skeleton of corals , the shells of bivalves such as clams , crustacean shells etc ...
Besides the intrinsic importance of these factors, it is important to be present in water in definite proportions . The salts are commercial balanced mixtures of a multitude of salts , present in a balanced way , it happens , however, that there may be unbalanced consumption of calcium or carbonates , due to micro- precipitation or other factors.
KH Carbonate Buffer brings in the most concentrated form possible. Take a few grams to increase the value of KH in a remarkable. Thanks to this characteristic , it is suitable for large tanks .
Its use is similar to that of Liquid KH Plus , but has a greater power of reinstatement . It is therefore more difficult to dose in small tanks , since small quantities may vary the level of KH too quickly .
KH Buffer , as well as Liquid KH Plus and CA + KH Part B , is devoid of Borates . This is because the continuous use could lead to an accumulation of boron . This situation is to be avoided. This element , in fact , is consumed with a lower speed than the carbonates. And ' necessary to separately control the level of boron and correct it if necessary through the use of Oceanlife Boron.
These products do not alter the values of nitrates, phosphates, silicates and are free of chelating agents, preservatives and gluconates .
1 ml of KH buffer in 90 liters of water increase the value of the carbonates of 1 dKH . In the case in which the KH should be increased more than one degree , dilute the dose over several days , so as to increase not more than 1-2 dKH / day .
