pH Buffer with NO PHOSPHATES!
Does anyone know of a water buffer like API Proper pH 7 that doesn't contain Phosphates?

Cloudiness of water you spoke of in earlier post could be caused by different factors such as bacteria bloom in newly set up tank,overfeeding,overstocking,underfiltered tank,or not rinsing gravel before placing it in the tank, or not rinsing coral,aragonite added to filter.
Phosphate is added by many who keep planted tanks on nearly daily basis (see estimative index dosing) and does not cause cloudy water or algae directly.
The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

For natural ways to lower your ph please read the following article http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/f...quarium-73276/ ph is related to hardness in the water and depending on what your carbon hardness is will depend on how easily your ph will adjust. This article will explain in more detail, and please do not use chemicals to try to adjust your ph, because this can lead to shifts in the ph which will actually be even more harmful to your fish.
