The pH of an aquarium is a very important, yet commonly overlooked aquarium water parameter. Maintaining a balanced, stable pH is vital to the health of aquarium livestock and efficiency of the bio-filter. Fritz Aquatics pH products are concentrated, safe and easy-to-use formulations that adjust and maintain the correct pH for both freshwater and saltwater aquariums. With Fritz pH Higher, the pH may be increased to a desired level for aquarium inhabitants.
Directions & Dosage
To increase pH, add 5 ml (1 tsp) per 20 U.S. gallons (76 L) of water. Depending on the initial acidity of your water, several doses may be required to reach the target pH. Wait approximately 10 minutes, re-check the pH level before adding more Fritz pH Higher. If fish are present, limit pH change to 0.2 per day.
