I advise caution with Seachem's Acid Buffer. I have tried it a few times in
the past, but invariably it drives my pH down off the scale (even when I use
1/4 recommended dose). I am sure that this has to do with low buffering
capacity in my water, etc. I am not saying that you shouldn't use it, but
do be careful with your dosage.
