Kusuri Lithaqua (kH Buffer)

Description

Kusuri Lithaqua is calcified seaweed high in trace elements and carbonates. It is an ideal filter media due to its porous construction, perfect for raising the KH of soft water, as well as stabilising pH

Kusuri Lithaqua has a high content of minerals, trace elements and carbonates. It brings them into your pond and thereby adjusts the mineral balance and improves the water quality.

Further Information

Lithaqua is a natural calcified seaweed. A pH buffer that can last a number of years. Lithaqua is a marine mineral sometimes referred to as coral, however it is calcified seaweed, high in trace elements and carbonates. Ideal for use in tanks and filter bays. Average particule size is 2-4mm. Modern filters contain many varied plastic media.

These provide good support for bacteria, but Lithaqua goes one stage further. Not only do beneficial bacteria draw nutrients from the media, the media being of porous construction has a huge surface area up to 20 times greater than most plastic media. However the main advantage of Lithaqua is the high level of Carbonates which will improve carbonate alkalinity in soft water. It neutralizes low acid pH and reduces pH swings. It will keep the pH above 7, negating the use of quick fix short term pH buffers.

Dosage Instructions

Use at the rate of 500 – 1000 grams for up to 100 gallons. Add more if required, the application rate will vary dependant on alkalinity. As a buffer usually will stabilize pH for 12 – 18 months.
Also available: Kusuri net sacks for holding 5kgs of Lithaqua medium.

Kusuri Lithaqua is a marine mineral with a high content of minerals, trace elements and carbonates. It brings them into your pond and thereby adjusts the mineral balance and improves the water quality. Use it as pond substrate for bacteria to grow or use it as a filter medium.

Modern multi-chamber filters contain mainly plastic media. Those are excellent supports for bacteria but they do not add anything to water quality. It is important to fill at least one filter chamber (preferably the last chamber) with Kusuri Lithaqua. It provides an enormous surface area for bacteria 10 to 20 times more than most plastic filter media) and provides the bacteria with essential nutrients.

Kusuri Lithaqua neutralises acid pH and helps to restore carbonate alkalinity.

Lithaqua is a marine mineral high in trace elements and carbonates, ideal for raising KH values. A superb filter media of porous construction, allowing a huge surface area for the growth of beneficial bacteria.

Modern filter chambers contain many and varied plastic media, these provide good support - but Lithaqua goes one stage further. Not only do the beneficial bacteria draw on nutrients from the mineral support, the media has a massive surface area up to 20 times greater than most plastic media.

Lithaqua is a biological media not intended for mechanical stages.

Use Lithaqua in a clean water chamber after mechanical removal of waste. Lithaqua is far more efficient than crushed oyster shells, and the high level of carbonates will improve carbonate alkalinity in soft water regions, neutralising low acid pH and buffer swings in pH.
