Overview

*Aquarium pH adjuster for setting and stabilizing desired pH levels
*Great for new aquariums or maintaining pH of existing aquariums
*Available in four pH levels to accommodate popular aquarium styles

Set and stabilize aquarium pH at levels you desire. API Proper pH aquarium-pH adjuster is perfect for use when setting up new aquariums or maintaining the pH of your existing aquarium. Neutralizes chlorine, detoxifies heavy metals and adds electrolytes to reduce fish stress. Also contains Aloe Vera, a proven natural stress reliever and healing agent of aquarium fish.

Note: Proper pH is a phosphate buffer and should not be used with aquarium plants.

Proper pH 6.5
Automatically sets & stabilizes pH at 6.5. Great for freshwater aquariums with Tetras, Discus, and Angelfish. 240g jar treats 200 gallons.

Proper pH 7.0
Automatically sets and stabilizes pH at 7.0. Great for tropical freshwater community aquariums. 250g jar treats up to 200 gallons.

Proper pH 7.5
Automatically sets and stabilizes pH at 7.5. Great for freshwater aquariums with goldfish, mollies, guppies, barbs and other fish that prefer a slightly alkaline pH. 260g jar treats up to 200 gallons.

Proper pH 8.2
Automatically sets and stabilizes pH at 8.2. Great for saltwater, brackish and African cichlid aquariums. 200g jar treats up to 200 gallons.

Directions for Use
Proper pH 6.5
Add one scoop of Proper pH for every 10 gallons (40 L) of aquarium water. Repeat treatment when a pH test indicates a change of more than 0.2 pH units away from the desired pH level.

Proper pH 7.0
Add one scoop of Proper pH for every 10 gallons (40 L) of aquarium water. Repeat treatment when a pH test indicates a change of more than 0.2 pH units away from the desired pH level.

Proper pH 7.5
Add one scoop of Proper pH for every 10 gallons (40 L) of aquarium water. Repeat treatment when a pH test indicates a change of more than 0.2 pH units away from the desired pH level.

Proper pH 8.2
For African Cichlid Aquariums
Proper pH should never be used without first adding an African Cichlid Salt. Proper pH 8.2 was designed for use is hard water containing many salts and minerals, such as water in the lakes where African Cichlids originate. If it is used in water containing few salts and minerals, an unnaturally high pH can result. Using the enclosed measuring spoon, add one scoop of Proper pH for every 10 gallons (40 L) of aquarium water. Repeat treatment when a pH test indicates a change of more than 0.2 pH units away from the desired pH level.

For Saltwater Aquariums
Using the enclosed measuring spoon, add one scoop of Proper pH for every 10 gallons (40 L) of aquarium water. Repeat treatment when a pH test indicates a change of more than 0.2 pH units away from the desired pH level. For best results, pre-dissolve in a separate container with aquarium water, then pour into aquarium.

General Information
Proper pH 6.5
Purpose and Benefits:
Proper pH 6.5 is a pH adjuster and stabilizer (buffer) for freshwater aquariums. Proper pH 6.5 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.

Compatibility:
Proper pH 6.5 is for freshwater aquariums only. Proper pH 6.5 is a phosphate buffer and should not be used with live aquatic plants. If the aquarium water has a general hardness (GH) level above 200 ppm, a haze can form in the water. This haze is the precipitation of some of the mineral salts. It is nontoxic and will be filtered out by most aquarium filters. This haze can be avoided by first softening aquarium water with API Water Softener Pillow (DFS# 71260). Use the Water Softener Pillow to reduce water hardness, thus preventing mineral haze and permitting easy pH adjustments to 6.5. Use API GH Test Kit (DFS# 100942) to measure water hardness.

Proper pH 7.0
Purpose and Benefits:
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
