Seachem Reef Buffer will also raise carbonate alkalinity; however, it is intended primarily for use as a buffer in a reef system where the maintenance of a pH of 8.3 is often difficult. When pH is not an issue, Reef Builder should be your first choice for a carbonate alkalinity supplement. Reef Buffer is specifically designed to meet the needs and requirements of the closed reef environment.
