pH is the measure of acidic or alkaline conditions of water. A value of 7.0 corresponds to a neutral pH. pH values about 7.0 are considered alkaline, and pH values below 7.0 are considered acidic. Different fish need different pH levels to be healthy. Check the pH level using a pH Test Kit. pH DOWN is designed to lower the pH of aquarium water where testing has shown pH to be at an undesirable level. pH DOWN lowers pH and makes aquarium water more acidic. pH DOWN is fast-acting, colorless, easy to use and will not cloud or color the aquarium water.
pH DOWN is phosphate-free and nitrate-free therefore will not encourage algae growth.
For community aquariums, soft water and live-bearing fish
When to use: Use an API Test Kit weekly to accurately monitor pH. Then, when necessary, use pH Down to reduce pH levels in your aquarium.
Use 1/2 teaspoon (2.5mL) for each 95 Litres of aquarium water, for larger aquariums add 1 tsp (5ml) for each 190L of water and test with API pH Test kit
