Understanding Aquavitro Carbonate:
Aquavitro Carbonate is made with potassium bicarbonate. Potassium bicarbonate is a compound that contains potassium (K), hydrogen (H), carbon (C), and oxygen (O). It can be used as a source of both potassium and carbonate ions in aquariums. Potassium is an essential nutrient for aquatic plants, and carbonate ions contribute to buffering the pH of the water.
