Seachem Equilibrium is specifically designed to establish the ideal mineral content for the planted aquarium. It raises the essential mineral/electrolyte content of the water to balance with and promote stability of the carbonate hardness. It contains only calcium, magnesium, and potassium salts, which aid in fish metabolism, but are also highly beneficial to plant growth. Seachem equilibrium contains no sodium or chloride that can rapidly depleted elements in a planted aquarium.
Seachem Equilibrium 300g
Directions for use:
To raise mineral content/general hardness by 1 meq/L (3 dH), add 16 g (1 tablespoon) for every 80 L (20 gallons) when setting up an aquarium or when making water changes (add to new water). Equilibrium can be added straight; although for optimum solubility we recommend mixing with ~ 1 L (1 qt.) of water. The resulting mixture will have a white opaque appearance. When this mixture is added to the aquarium, it will impart a slight haze that should clear within 15-30 minutes. HINTS:
Do not use Equilibrium when replacing evaporated water. This dose is based on DI or RO water; for other water, measure hardness first, then add according to need. Plant preferences vary, but a general guide is about 1–2 meq/L (3–6 dH) or match the existing or target carbonate hardness (KH), which, ideally, is also about 1–2 meq/L (3–6 dKH).
