Microbe Lift Aqua Acid Buffer 236ml FreshWater

A non-phosphate based buffer formulated to lower pH and buffer your aquarium water when used with MICROBE-LIFT/Aqua Alkaline Buffer. These two buffers are dedicated for the planted aquarium or for very hard water where phosphate buffers may pose an algae problem.

MICROBE-LIFT/Aqua Acid Buffer, when combined with MICROBE-LIFT/Aqua Alkaline Buffer, will buffer between 8.7 and 6.0. It is very gentle, safe and revitalizes the freshwater environment. As MICROBE-LIFT/Aqua Acid Buffer lowers the pH it also converts carbonate alkalinity into CO2. This product is compatible with all other MICROBE-LIFT buffers.

    Adjusts pH Lower to Any Range Between 8.7 - 6.0*
    Converts Carbonate Hardness (KH) to CO2

*When used in conjunction with Aqua Alkaline Buffer

Note: When used by itself this product will lower the pH as low as 5.0 (slow drop).


Use 5 mL of the MICROBE-LIFT/Aqua Acid Buffer for every 2.5 gallons (10 L) of tank volume on a daily basis until the desired pH is obtained. At this dosage, alkalinity will be lowered by about 0.08 meq/L (0.3 dKH). If your aquarium's water is soft or not well buffered use with MICROBE-LIFT/Aqua Alkaline Buffer.

MICROBE-LIFT/Aqua Acid Buffer may be added to the aquarium directly at any time. It has a preference to buffer between a pH of 5.0-6.0, but can also be used to adjust to any pH from 6.0-8.7 when used in combination with MICROBE-LIFT/Aqua Alkaline Buffer at the fixed ratio below (see chart).


When using Aqua Acid Buffer in combination with Aqua Alkaline Buffer never mix directly in your tank. First, premix in a clean bucket with 2 gal. of R/O, DI or dechlorinated tap water. Always add the Aqua Acid Buffer first. Once the desired pH is reached in the bucket, add the premixed solution quickly to the aquarium. You may notice a tint in the bucket of water; however, when poured into your aquarium any tint will dissipate. Some cloudiness may appear in the aquarium after addition, but this will quickly clear up.

Multiply calculated dosage times number in column to determine amount required to adjust to desired pH.
