Use when setting up an aquarium and when making water changes. Use with shrimp pHa to target a pH. All doses given are for 20 L (5 US gallons). Doses can be safely doubled if needed. In cases of sensitive shrimp or to avoid the risk of any pH shock, consider breaking dosing up over a 12 –24 hour period.
To simply raise the pH in established aquaria: Add 2.5 mL (½ tsp) of shrimp pHb per 20 L (5 US gallons) every 12 hours until you achieve your target pH. Do not exceed this dose. Rapid pH changes can be very detrimental to shrimp. Some aquariums may require repeated dosing to overcome the buffering capacity of certain substrates and decorations. This is particularly the case with humate based soils.
