Continuum Aquatics Reef Basis KH Buffer 250ml







  • Description
  • Directions

Basis KH Liquid Buffer is a true buffering system, designed to raise the alkalinity or buffering capacity of marine fish and reef aquariums and automatically regulates pH.


This product will stabilise the pH over a wide range of conditions, providing safety over the entire system. 


Continuum recommends that you maintain a Alkalinity level of 7 to 11 dKH (2.5 to 4 meq/l) and a pH of 8.3

Shake bottle well prior to use. Add 1 capful (5ml) per 95L of water, 3-4 times per week. For best results, measure the alkalinity and add as necessary to maintain the desired alkalinity between 7 and 11.



Dosing through use of a separate drip system is a superior method of addition. Two dosing systems are required to dose basis KH liquid simultaneously with calcium supplements and most other additives. Do not mix basis KH liquid with calcium or mineral supplements prior to addition. Determine the amount of alkalinity consumption during the time it takes add the entire volume of your drip system. Determine the amount of basis KH to add in millilitres by multiplying your tank capacity in gallons by the amount you want to raise it in meq/L and by 1.0 or in dKH by .357 (Example: if you have a 50 gallon tank and you want to raise the level by 1 meq/L with the entire dose, you would multiply 50 x 1 which equals 50 ml of basis KH liquid or 10 capfuls. Or if you want to raise it by 1 dKH, you would multiply 50 x .357 = 17.85 ml or about 3-1/2 capfuls.)
