Product Summary:

Seachem Reef Builder

A great requisite for maintaining the right sort of environment for the fishes, this Seachem reef builder helps in the growth of the reef in your aquarium. It is ideal to increase the level of carbonate alkalinity in reef aquarium. Formulated with a special blend, it increases the carbonate alkalinity without bringing any immediate effect on the pH level of the water. It helps in maintaining a healthy coral growth by replenishing the essential carbonates and calcium. After long term usage, it helps in maintaining the pH level of water at 8.3. Even at such higher levels, it never depletes the calcium, magnesium, or strontium that usually tends to precipitate with increasing alkalinity. It can also be used together with reef buffer to raise the carbonate alkalinity with or without raising the pH levels. Easy to use with the instructions and dosage level provided, you can ensure a safe and healthy environment to the fishes.

Item Specification: 

BEGINNER: Use 3 g (half a level teaspoon*) per 150 L (40 gallons*) twice a week. Dissolve in at least 250 mL (1 cup*) of freshwater. Check alkalinity every 2 weeks and adjust amount or frequency accordingly

ADVANCED: Check alkalinity, then follow addition regimen above until alkalinity is adjusted to 4–5 meq/L. Each 3 g/150 L will raise alkalinity by about 0.25 meq/L. Quantity or frequency can be adjusted, but do not exceed 12 g/150 L per day. Thereafter, use as required to maintain alkalinity

EXPERT: After determining the alkalinity consumption rate, set up a continuous drip system. Use the following formula to determine how much to add to your top-off water: m=0.08va (m=grams to add to top off water, v=volume of tank in liters, a=amount to raise alkalinity in meq/L). For example, if you want to raise your alkalinity by 1 meq/L in a 200 liter tank, then you would add 0.08x200x1=16 g into the top-off water. [For reference: 1 gallon*=3.8 liters, 6 g=1 teaspoon*]. Notes: Use MultiTest:™ Marine pH & Alkalinity to measure total alkalinity.HINTS: Use MultiTest:™ Marine pH & Alkalinity to measure total alkalinity
