API® pH UP pH adjuster raises pH levels in your aquarium to make water more alkaline when levels fall too low. pH is the measure of acidic or alkaline conditions in water, where a value of 7.0 corresponds to a neutral pH, pH values about 7.0 are considered alkaline, and pH values below 7.0 are considered acidic. Different fish need different pH levels to be healthy, so it is important to test your water regularly to ensure pH levels fall where they should. pH UP pH adjuster is fast-acting, colorless, easy to use, and will not cloud aquarium water. Because it is phosphate-free and nitrate-free, pH UP pH adjuster will not encourage algae growth.
Determine the pH of aquarium water with an API pH TEST KIT. To raise pH, add 1 ml. for each 10 gallons of aquarium water. Take another pH reading before adding another dose of pH UP pH adjuster. Some fish may be sensitive to pH adjustments greater than 0.2 in a 24 hour period, so changes of this magnitude should be done with extreme care.
What does API pH UP™ pH adjuster do?
API pH UP pH adjuster is added to water to raise pH levels, making water more alkaline.
Can I use repeated doses of API pH UP™ pH adjuster?
Yes, you can use API pH UP pH adjuster once daily in your aquarium, but you should always test the pH between doses.
Can API pH UP™ pH adjuster be used in marine aquariums?
API pH UP pH adjuster will not cause any harm to marine aquariums, but it is designed specifically for fine-tuning pH, and is not strong enough to have an effect on marine aquarium levels.
Can API pH UP™ pH adjuster be used with live plants?
Yes, API pH UP pH adjuster and API pH DOWN™ pH adjuster are safe for live plants.
