Majestic Aquariums General kH Generator will increase the carbonate hardness of water to ensure good health and a longer life span of your fish.
Sydney tap water seems to have a reduced level of Carbonate Hardness (kH) compared with two years ago. Recent kH tests of Sydney tap water show levels as low as 0-20ppm. This is a concern, as to keep a happy freshwater aquarium you need a minimum kH level of 40-60ppm and 200ppm for marine aquariums. kH is important to all biological processes and is also essential to the break-down of nitrogen by bacteria, which cannot occur without the presence of carbonate. It also acts as a stabiliser and buffer to pH.
For the most effective results, Majestic Aquariums recommend using this in conjunction with a water dechlorinator and Tropical Conditioning Salts.
Directions Add 1 heaped teaspoon or 8 grams to 100 Litres of Water. This will raise Carbonate Hardness by approximately 2dkh or 35ppm & ph between 7.8 and 8.5. For planted aquariums or aquariums with C02 systems, use cautiously with small doses to avoid large pH increases.
