Seachem Discus Buffer 250g (pH 5.8 - 6.8)

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

Neutral Regulator™ and Discus Buffer™ can be used in combination to achieve a desired pH when performing water changes or adding top off water. The ratio chart below is designed for reverse osmosis (r/o) water where there is generally no buffering capacity.

Sizes: 50g, 250g, 500g, 1kg, 4kg

Use 1 level teaspoon (7g) for every 40-80L 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 in combination with Neutral Regulator™ following the chart below. This chart assumes the use of unbuffered water (RO or DI). If water is already buffered use the chart as a starting guide. Use Prime® to dechlorinate tap water before doing a water change.

Use these ratios to target pH

1 : 1 6.8
1 : 2 6.4
1 : 3 6.2
1 : 4 6.1
1 : 6 6.0
