The directions for Seachem Lake Tanganyika Buffer say "Use 5 g (1 level teaspoon) for each 40Ė80 L (10 to 20 US gallons) of water each day until desired pH is attained and maintained. Thereafter, use as required to maintain pH, usually no more than once every two to three weeks." My pH dropped precipitously from 9.4 to closing in on 8 over the first 24 hours. I added more yesterday and it looks like the pH stabilized at 8.3. I'm torn on what to do next because the lake itself has a pH of 9, but one of the breeders I have been talking to keeps his tanks at 8.2. I think that I am going to add more buffer and target a pH close to, but slightly under 9. That should give me a high enough pH for any wild-caught fish, while also not being too far off from holding tanks and/or breeding tanks.
