Advitan kH Booster is a conditioner for the increase of carbonate hardness and chelated potassium in fresh and saltwater aquariums.


Carbonate hardness is one of the important factors for stabilizing aquarium parameter.

For example:
Low kH values causes unstable water condition, such as pH value. Livestock in aquariums water without carbonate hardness is dangerous. This is due to the lack of acid binding capacity. Without carbonate hardness, waste and excrement from fish and other livestock in the water will cause pH value to drop causing drastically . Certain species, such as Tanganyikan cichlids, marine fishes, invertebrates, including aquatic plants, etc., require higher kH values to thrive. Chelated potassium contained in Advitan kH Booster is an essential mineral, for all aquarium inhabitants. However, excessively high potassium concentrations of potassium values in aquarium water can endanger sensitive species such as
shrimps. Compared to calcium, potassium is commonly lacking in municipal tap water, and none from reverse osmosis water. It is one of macro-elements which is absorbed
quickly and effectively by plants in fresh water.



Advitan kH Booster provides the followings:

     • 1-ml per 3.785 liter / 1 gallon increases 1.2 mg/l Potassium

     • 1-ml per 3.785 liter / 1 gallon increases 7 mg/l Carbonate Hardness
1 capful (5-ml) of each 19 liter (5 gal.) water provides 7 mg/l dkH (ppm).

Always check the potassium and carbonate hardness prior to administering.

Ideal values:

• Community aquariums: 4 ~ 5 mg/l dkH

• Planted aquariums: 5 ~ 8 mg/l dkH
• Fishes from soft acidic regions: 2 ~ 3 mg/l dkH

• Lake Tanganyikan cichlids: 16+ mg/l dkH

• Lake Malawi cichlids: 6 ~ 8 mg/l dkH

• Saltwater aquariums: 9+ mg/l dh
