About the Product:

Aquarium Pharmaceuticals pH Down lowers pH and makes aquariums more acidic. Fast-acting, colorless and easy-to-use. API pH Down is fast-acting, colorless, easy to use, and will not cloud or color aquarium water.

The colorless formula will not cloud or color aquarium water. Contains no phosphates, a major source of algae outbreaks.

The following pH levels are recommended for freshwater tropical fish:
Egg-laying fish: 6.6 to 6.8 (slightly acidic)

Live bearing fish: 7.2 to 7.6 (slightly alkaline)

Directions: Use API Freshwater pH Test Kit to determine the pH of aquarium water. To lower pH, add two drops of pH Down for each gallon of aquarium water. Take another pH reading before adding the next dose of pH Down. If fish are present in the aquarium, do not change the pH more than 0.2 in any 24 hour period (for example, from 7.2 to 7.0).
