Seachem Equilibrium 300g

RM 50.00


Equilibrium

 

  •  Restores and maintains mineral balance and GH
  •  Does not contain sodium or chloride like competing products
  •  Ideally suited for use with RO or DI water or any mineral deficient water


Description

 

Equilibrium™ is specifically designed to establish the  ideal mineral content for the planted aquarium. Equilibrium™ contains no  sodium or chloride (which can be detrimental to a planted aquarium at  elevated levels). Equilibrium™ is ideally suited for use with RO  (reverse osmosis) or DI (deionized) water or any mineral deficient  water. Equilibrium™ raises the essential mineral/electrolyte content  (General Hardness) of the water to balance with and promote stability of  the carbonate hardness. To maintain KH, we recommend Alkaline Buffer™. 

 

Unlike competing products, Equilibrium contains NO SODIUM  CHLORIDE. Both sodium and chloride are not rapidly depleted elements in  a planted aquarium, and, in the case of chloride, can do more harm than  good. Competitors’ products generally contain primarily sodium chloride  (because it is inexpensive), which will raise the electrolyte levels  for fish, but can be detrimental to plant growth. In addition, sodium is  not a contributing cation to GH levels. Equilibrium™ contains only  calcium, magnesium, and potassium salts, which aid in fish metabolism,  but are also highly beneficial to plant growth.  Equilibrium guaranteed analysis and symptoms of deficiency

 

Directions

 

To raise mineral content/general hardness (GH) by 1 meq/L  (3 dH), add 16 g (1 tablespoon) for every 80 L (20 US gallons) when  setting up an aquarium or when making water changes (add to new water).  For optimum solubility we recommend mixing with 1 L (1 qt.) of water  (the resulting mixture will have a white opaque appearance). When this  mixture is added to the aquarium it will impart a slight haze that  should clear within 15–30 minutes. HINTS: Do not use Equilibrium™ when  replacing evaporated water. This dose is based on DI or RO water; for  other water, measure hardness (GH) first, then add according to need.   For precise dosing, use the Seachem Digital Spoon Scale.

 

Plant preferences vary, but a general guide is about  1–2 meq/L (3–6 dH) or match the existing or target carbonate hardness  (KH), which, ideally, is also about 1–2 meq/L (3–6 dKH). Equilibrium™  will compact with age, but remains effective.
