Aquarium pH Adjustment

     pH ranges from 0 to 14, 7 is supposed to be neutral. Below 7 is acidic while above 7 is basic. Natural seawater has mildly basic pH and ranges from 8.0 to 8.4 In the home aquarium pH levels should not be allowed to fall below 8.2 or rise above 8.6, doing so may cause undesirable conditions in the aquarium. By staying at the higher end of the natural range of pH helps to inhibit the growth of filamentous algae.

     pH is a measure of the concentration of hydrogen ions and is expressed as a negative log. If you want to adjust or correct pH then you would have to change the concentration of hydrogen ions in the aquarium water. If your pH is too low, then you have too many hydrogen ions. If your pH is too high then you don't have enough hydrogen ions. If your aquarium fish tank ph is too low, then you will need to add a basic solution like pH Rock.

pH Rock

     pH adjustment system will increase ph in the saltwater aquarium and increase ph for the freshwater aquarium. Aquarium pH adjustment has 28 trace elements (not strontium) and has plenty of CaCO3 and MgCO3 for all fish tank corals. When pH adjustment rock dissolves, one just adds more. pH adjustment rock size is 1 to 1.5 inches and is mixed.

The amount required for our aquarium pH adjustment to raise ph fish tanks can be calculated using this formula:

.5 X gallons = 8.4 pH

.6 X gallons = 8.6 pH

     pH Adjustment Rock will raise Calcium levels to over 400ppm while raising Alkalinity levels.

How to Use pH Adjustment Rock

     This is VERY IMPORTANT! The pH rock MUST be placed directly behind the Tri Based Pelletized Carbon. The reason for this is that the acid from the bacteria is the highest at that point and reacts with the pH Rock. IF you do not place the pH rock behind the TBPC, the reaction will not be complete. Just hanging it in a bag in the sump will not do it. It has been tried all different ways and this is the only way it works.
