Acid Buffer™ is phosphate/carbonate free buffer for lowering and stabilizing pH in the acid range of pH 4–6.8. Acid Buffer™ is designed primarily for freshwater use, is ideal for planted aquaria, and may be substituted for Discus Buffer™ wherever phosphate buffers may pose a problem, such as in high calcium waters or aquaria prone to undesirable algae growth. It is compatible with Discus Buffer™, Neutral Regulator™, and Alkaline Buffer™.
A lot of people give this product a bad rap, but it's really not meant to be used by itself. By following the label, you can target a specific pH when mixing it with Seachem Alkaline Buffer to create well buffered water. (It works best when your start with RO/DI water.) It should NOT be thought of as a cheap way to add CO2. It's carbonate based so it doesn't invalidate the CO2 chart.
