The pH levels in your saltwater aquarium can heavily impact the health of your marine life. While the ideal pH level is not universal for all fish and corals, you do not want your aquarium to fall into a lower, acidic pH level.
A slightly alkaline environment (around 8.3) is a good level to aim for if you have a mixture of marine life. More often than not, hobbyists struggle to maintain a good level of alkalinity in their tank. This is where pH Up really comes into play; it helps to raise pH in aquariums, without promoting nuisance algae growth.
Fish and other aerobic organisms in your saltwater aquarium respire, producing carbon dioxide and absorbing oxygen. Dosing with pH Up will help to offset the carbon dioxide production by increasing and stabilizing pH within your aquarium.
Although pH Up is an effective method of treating pH temporarily, if you are chronically low, we do recommend getting to the source of your pH issues. Possible causes of low pH include too many fish, low amounts of fresh air being introduced to the aquarium, insufficient water flow and lack of alkalinity.
– Deionised water
– Buffer salts
Always test your tank’s pH level prior to adding pH Up. Once you know the status of your current pH level, you can begin adding pH Up to gradually increase alkalinity to the desired level.
When adjusting your tank’s pH levels, do not raise the pH more than 0.2 per day. Work to gradually increase alkalinity to avoid stress on your marine life. Additionally, we strongly recommend that you do not exceed a pH level higher than 8.5 in your aquarium.
