Why is KH Important? KH levels are important for the natural biological ammonia removal process (nitrification). In order for ammonia removal to proceed properly, KH must be present. In fact, 7.1mg of KH is required for every 1mg of ammonia removed. A level of 100ppm KH should be maintained at all times. Should KH levels fall below the necessary level, nitrification will stop and pH levels will become difficult to control.
Nitrification depletes KH continuously, so monitoring KH levels and applying Microbe-Lift® KH Bio-Active Booster as necessary is extremely important.
