Alkalinity (Kh) along with Calcium (Ca) gets consumed by corals on a daily basis. This consumption needs to be replaced. Target range for Kh is 8-10 dkh. Test often with a quality test kit. It is important to keep Kh as stable (without big fluctuation) as possible. This is why Kh is typically used along with Ca as part of a 2-part dosing system. Kh and Ca can be dosed manually, if done in small amounts while monitoring your systems Ph level. MeCoral Kh is designed to raise Ph.
Quick guide: In order to raise Kh .10 dkh or from 8.00 to 8.10 in 100 gallons of aquarium water, add 5 ml. Drip slowly and test as needed.
Mixing instructions: MECoral Kh powder package is pre-measured to make a 1 gallon liquid solution. In a 1 gallon container or jug, add approximately 3/4 gallon of your RODI water. Add the entire MECoral Kh package of powder to the water in the jug. Shake aggressively. Add more RODI water to make a 1 gallon liquid solution. Let rest before use. Do not pour the powder into the jug prior to the water, as this will produce clumping. If clumping occurs, place jug in a hot water bath and shake again.
