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.

Good Luck,
Matthew Shaffer
