  • Adjusts pH to 5.8 - 6.8
  • Replicates the ideal Discus environment
  • Use with Neutral Regulator to target a pH

Discus Buffer helps to replicate the ideal water environment for Discus fish which require low pH and low GH (General Hardness). Discus Buffer lowers water pH and keep it lowered, and also softens water by precipitating calcium and magnesium which can then be removed by the aquarium filter.

Discus Buffer contains phosphate buffers and conditioning agents. The product is safe for all freshwater fish acclimated to acid pH.

Benefits of Seachem Discus Buffer

  • Adjusts water pH to 5.8 - 6.8 acidic
  • Softens water general hardness
  • Reproduces the ideal environment for Discus fish
  • Can use with Neutral Regulator to target a pH

How Discus Buffer Works

Discus Buffer lowers pH and keep it lowered. Discus Buffer also softens water by precipitating calcium and magnesium.

After treating water with Discus Buffer, use Discus Trace to restore the proper level of trace elements and feed NutriDiet Discus Flakes for thriving, healthy Discus.

Neutral Regulator and Discus Buffer can be used in combination to achieve a desired pH when performing water changes or adding top off water.

Directions

Use 1 level teaspoon (5 g) for every 40-80 L (10-20 US gallons) daily until intended pH is reached. Thereafter, use once a month or with water changes as required to maintain pH.For precise dosing use the Seachem Digital Spoon Scale. To raise pH, use Neutral Regulator. To target a particular pH use in combination with Neutral Regulator following the chart. This chart assumes the use of unbuffered water (RO or DI). If water is already buffered use the chart as a starting guide. Use Prime to dechlorinate tap water before doing a water change.

Neutral Regulator and Discus Buffer can be used in combination to achieve a desired pH when performing water changes or adding top off water. The ratio chart below is designed for RO water where there is generally no buffering capacity.

To target a particular pH use in combination with Neutral Regulator following the chart.
