Each ESV B-Ionic Calcium Buffer System has two components - Alkalinity and Calcium. When used in equal parts, easily maintain calcium and alkalinity levels with no mixing of powders, disruption of ionic balace or addition of organic chemicals. Formulated to provide all the proper ratios to duplicate the composition of synthetic seawater.
With use, can help restore ions lost from protein skimming and help maintain the ionic balance of the aquarium water.
The recommended starting dose is 1 mL of each component per 4 gallons of aquarium capacity per day. Test calcium and alkalinity frequently until the correct dosing amount is achieved to keep both elements stable from day to day. Each tank will be different and depends on many different variables will determine how much your tank will need to be dosed on a daily basis.
