Increases pH Without Increasing Sodium.
Alongside temperature, salinity, GH and KH; pH is one of the most important water parameters in your aquarium. Different aquariums require specific pH ranges, these parameters are often not met due to influences such as carbon dioxide or lack of buffers. Plant Essential® Alkaline is designed to increase pH of planted aquariums without increasing sodium. Carbon dioxide is present in planted aquariums due to either CO2 canisters and/or fish respiration which reacts with water forming carbonic acid. Carbonic acid along with organic acids, present in some substrates, will lower pH, as a result planted aquariums may become too acidic.
