Reef Blueprint Carbon8 aq 9.20 - Increases Alkalinity, Limits pH 9.2

Increases alkalinity in recirculating seawater systems, as well as pH to a maximum value of 9.20. Formulation excludes phosphate- and hydroxide-based salts. 1 mL Carbon8 aq per 26.4 gallons (100 L) increases alkalinity by 0.1 dKH. 5 mL Carbon8 aq per 20.0 gallons (75.7 L) increases alkalinity by 0.60 dKH. 160,000 ppm total carbonate species.

Parameter: Total CO3 species

Value: 160,000 ppm

Active Components: USP-grade Sodium and/or Potassium salts of bicarbonate, carbonate, sulfate, and borate.

Basic Application:
  • 1 mL per 26.4 gallons (100 L) increases alkalinity by 0.1 dKH.
  • 5 mL per 20.0 gallons (75.7 L) increases alkalinity by 0.60 dKH.
Reference Standard: 8.50 +/-0.5 dKH

In established systems, increase alkalinity up to 1 dKH daily, until desired value or reference standard is reached.

Application:
Dose solution as necessary to maintain system alkalinity within desired range. Recommended is to begin at a dosing rate which does not exceed alkalinity increase of 18.1 mg/L (1.0 dKH) per 24h, monitoring system alkalinity with calibrated apparatus or other reliable alkalinity indicator. Permit system alkalinity to stabilize (T≥300s) before re-applying. Adjust dosing rate as necessary. If using with automated dosing apparatus, then do not introduce organic materials to direct vicinity of drip entry-point into system, as these may saponify. Do not exceed system pH maximum. Do not apply in close proximity to sessile invertebrates or developing finfish embryos. Monitor cohort for signs of distress when increasing average system alkalinity and pH, and decrease or halt rate of dosing if distress is noticed. Do not increase average system pH value by more than 0.10 per 12h. Aside from emergencies (e.g. excessive nutrient content in an active system, greatly depressed or excessive salinity, etc.), gradual changes in water composition are generally tolerated better by aquatic organisms than are rapid change.

Size: 355mL
