AquaFX Sodium Bi-Carbonate is perfect either by itself or as part of a Calcium and Alkalinity duo to maintain appropriate alkalinity levels in your reef system. Monitoring and confirming that alkalinity levels stay at an appropriate level will ensure better coral growth, Coralline algae, as well as, invertebrate growth and health.
One Teaspoon (approx.~ 5 Grams) per 45 Gallons will raise alkalinity by approx. 1 dKH. It is always important to only use RO/DI water when dissolving your Sodium Bi-Carbonate. Limit large changes in pH to no more than +/- 0.2. Re-test and repeat dose until desired level is reached.
Test alkalinity prior to use
Natural Seawater is between 7-12 dKH
Do not raise alkalinity more than 1 dKH in 24 hours (to protect sensitive living organisms)
Always dose to a high flow area of the tank.
Dose less than needed to measure the effect before adding the total amount.
Product will release heat when mixed with water and become hot.
Always wear gloves and eye protection when handling.
