* pH conditioner/buffer softens water and maintains low pH
* Stable buffering system keeps pH and General Hardness levels low
* Recreates water conditions necessary to successfully keep Discus

Recreate ideal water conditions necessary to successfully keep Discus. Lowers pH and softens water by precipitating dissolved solids such as calcium, magnesium, and other metals. Very strong and stable buffering system maintains low pH level. Use with Neutral Regulator in fixed ratios to achieve a pH level between 5.8 - 6.8, depending on the amount used. 1 kg treats approximately 3,200 gallons. Not recommended for aquariums containing live plants.

General Information:
Discus Buffer helps replicate the ideal water conditions for Discus, low pH and low GH (General Hardness). Discus Buffer will lower pH and keep it lowered. Discus Buffer will also soften water by precipitating calcium and magnesium. Use Discus Trace to restore the proper level of trace elements required by thriving, healthy Discus.

Directions for Use:
Use 1 level teaspoon (5 g) for every 10 gallons daily until intended pH is reached. Thereafter, use once a month or with water changes as required to maintain pH.

To raise pH, use Neutral Regulator. To target a particular pH, use Discus Buffer in combination with Neutral Regulator following the chart below. This chart assumes the use of un-buffered water (RO or DI). If water is already buffered, use the chart below as a starting guide.

Use these ratios to target your desired pH level.

1 1 6.8
1 2 6.4
1 3 6.2
1 4 6.1
1 6 6.0
1 9 5.8
