Seachem Equilibrium ™ is specifically designed to establish the ideal mineral content for the planted aquarium. It contains no Sodium Chloride as both Sodium and Chloride are elements which do not quickly deplete in an aquarium , chloride can in fact do more harm than good . Some products on the market use a high % of Sodium Chloride ( salt) in their mixes as it is cheap .
Seachem Equilibrium is ideally suited to RO water ( reverse Osmosis) or DO ( deionized ) water .
Seachem Equilibrium™ raises the essential mineral/electrolyte content (General Hardness) of the water to balance with and promote stability of the carbonate hardness. To maintain KH, we recommend Alkaline Buffer™.
SEachem Equilibrium™ contains only calcium, magnesium, and potassium salts, which aid in fish metabolism, but are also highly beneficial to plant growth.
To raise mineral content/general hardness (GH) by 1 meq/L (3 dH), add 16 g (1 tablespoon) for every 80 L when setting up an aquarium or when making water changes (add to new water).
