Seachem Aquavitro Eight.Four 350ml

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Many competing buffers for reef aquaria are simply sodium bicarbonate. Such buffers have a pK of only 8.0 in saltwater and simply are unable to maintain a pH above 8.0. The low buffering pK is a function of the low carbonate/bicarbonate ratio. eight.four™ supplies a properly balanced (carbonate/bicarbonate) buffer system that yields an industry leading pK of 8.6 which makes pH maintenance of 8.3-8.5 easy. A higher pK increases the buffer's ability to counteract inevitable acidic sources in the water.

Details

Many competing buffers for reef aquaria are simply sodium bicarbonate. Such buffers have a pK of only 8.0 in saltwater and simply are unable to maintain a pH above 8.0. The low buffering pK is a function of the low carbonate/bicarbonate ratio. eight.four™ supplies a properly balanced (carbonate/bicarbonate) buffer system that yields an industry leading pK of 8.6 which makes pH maintenance of 8.3-8.5 easy. A higher pK increases the buffer's ability to counteract inevitable acidic sources in the water.

eight.four™ will safely raise marine pH while adjusting alkalinity.

eight.four™ contains a concentrated, balanced blend of bicarbonate and carbonate salts designed to restore disrupted buffer systems and increase carbonate alkalinity. If an alkalinity of 6 meq/L has been reached and a pH of at least 8.20 has not been attained, the system may be ionically unbalanced. Check magnesium levels. If magnesium is low, use ions™. However, if magnesium levels are within optimal range, the buffer ratio has likely been disrupted (the buffer ratio changes as a natural consequence of the buffer’s ability to counteract acidifying sources such as organic acids).

You can raise pH without raising alkalinity using balance™.

Dosing requirements will vary, but do not exceed the recommended dose without checking your pH and alkalinity (alkalinity should not exceed 6 meq/L).

Use one inner capful (7 ml) for every 110 L (30 gallons*) daily until pH stabilizes to desired level.

pH stabilization may take from a day to a week, depending on original pH, alkalinity, and buffer system balance.

Thereafter, use as needed to maintain pH.

Note: The aquavitro cap offers multiple dosing solutions depending on the size of your system.

Each inner cap thread is approximately 2 mL.

The inner cap contains 7 mL, while the outer ring contains 28 mL (35 mL when both are filled to the level of the inner cap.)

When filled to the top, the cap contains 49 mL.

Please be aware that this product is only available for collection in store.

Orders over £30 are Delivered FREE!

Providing none of the items in your order require pallet delivery or are excluded from delivery promotions, we will give you free standard delivery. You can still upgrade this service if you wish, and will only pay the difference.

 

Pallet Deliveries are different.

For items that have to be sent by insured pallet or other special delivery, these are excluded from the standard delivery offer and instead follow a different system. Pallet deliveries are split into 2 tiers: tier 1 and tier 2. Pallet deliveries take 2-4 working days and cannot be tracked.

 

For pallet deliveries we will contact you to confirm the delivery address and delivery day before releasing the order.

 

Please note that the pallet delivery service is a drop at kerb only service, the drivers are not insured to handle goods into homes and you are required to dispose of the pallet.

 

Pallet Tier 1

This tier is for solo tanks and cabinets, or other solo high weight products that we can't send by a normal courier. We subsidies the majority of the true delivery cost for these items to offer the best value we can. The shipping cost for these is calculated at checkout.

 

Pallet Tier 2

New for 2020! We are proud to announce we now offer FREE mainland UK pallet deliveries for Pallet Tier 2. Pallet Tier 2 is for the larger full tank and cabinet sets, such as the beautiful Juwel Rio, Lido, Trigon and Vision ranges.
