Proper pH 7.0 is a pH adjuster and stabilizer (buffer) for freshwater aquariums. Proper pH 7.0 neutralizes chlorine, detoxifies heavy metals, and adds electrolytes to the aquarium. The product also contains Aloe Vera, a proven natural stress reducer and healing agent for tropical fish. A pH of 7.0 is ideal for a community aquarium.
Proper pH 7.0 is formulated to lock the pH at 7.0. Buffers compensate for fluctuations in pH, automatically adjusting the pH to the predetermined level. Proper pH 7.0 will lower or raise the pH until 7.0 is reached. pH will not rebound to the original level. It may require more than one dose to adjust the pH. This is because carbonates (KH) in the water work against pH adjustment.
