No impact on pH
Will not deplete calcium, magnesium, or strontium
Will stabilize pH long term
Reef Builder and #8482; raises carbonate alkalinity without immediately impacting on pH. With long term use there will be a tendency to stabilize at pH 8.3. Carbonates and calcium are essential to all coral growth. If either becomes deficient, coral growth will cease, followed by a rapid decline in coral health. Used as directed, Reef Builder and #8482; will not deplete calcium, magnesium, or strontium which usually tend to precipitate with increasing alkalinity. Reef Builder and #8482; and Reef Buffer and #8482; may be used together. Use Reef Builder and #8482; to raise carbonate alkalinity without affecting pH. Use Reef Buffer and #8482; to raise carbonate alkalinity and pH. Unlike the competition, Reef Builder and #8482; contains calcium, magnesium, and strontium to compensate for the inevitable loss which occurs when raising alkalinity. It also contains sufficient magnesium to restore magnesium routinely depleted.
