pH/KH Booster, a mineral based carbonate hardness (KH) water conditioner, specifically blended to booster the KH levels in the aquariums, benefiting both the fish and aquatic plants, while also supplying essential minerals to the nitrifying bacteria and setting the pH at 8.20
Carbonate hardness (KH) is a temporarily hardness and is used within the aquarium system to stabilize pH, Biotope pH/KH Booster has been formulated to set the pH at 8.20.
Biotope Balance pH/KH Booster is a phosphate free product.
Biotope Balance pH/KH Booster is based on carbon cycle and not on using phosphates.
In the aquarium hobby the carbon cycle is not talked about very often, most hobbyist know about the nitrogen cycle, and the dangers of ammonia, nitrite and nitrate, but know little about the carbon cycle.
In very basic terms the carbon cycle is based around carbon dioxide, carbonates, bicarbonates and pH.
Carbon dioxide in water is an acid, carbonates and bicarbonate are on the neutral to alkaline side of the pH scale.
Carbon dioxide gas is continuously being produced in the aquarium by the fish, plants and the filtration system, while carbonates and bicarbonates are not produced within the system, it is this in balance that causes the pH to crash.
Biotope Balance pH/KH Booster is a blend of carbonates and bicarbonates, when added to the aquarium they will react with carbon dioxide, this reaction will convert the free carbon dioxide gas into the chemical compound carbonic acid and stabilize the pH at 8.20.
Biotope Balance pH/KH Booster will increase the KH level of the water.
With each water change add
5g (1 teaspoon) to 15 litres of newly added water to increase the KH by 12 degrees.
Biotope Balance pH/KH Booster is phosphate free.
Biotope Balance pH/KH Booster is made, packaged and distributed in Australia by Aquaforce Pty Ltd.
