Seachem Malawi/Victoria Buffer is a blend of carbonate salts designed to enhance the natural environment of cichlids by increasing hardness and buffer capacity and reaching and maintaining a healthy pH range of 7.8-8.4.
- Raises and maintains a pH range of 7.8 – 8.4
- Freshwater aquarium additive increases water hardness (alkalinity)
- pH conditioner/buffer for Malawi and Victoria cichlids
For optimum Malawi/Victoria environment replication, use Cichlid Lake Salt and Cichlid Trace.
Directions: Use 5 g (1 level teaspoon) for each 10 to 20 gallons of water each day until the desired pH is attained and maintained. After that, use as required to maintain pH, usually no more than once every two to three weeks.
Tips: It is best to dissolve the buffer in freshwater before use. Use when setting up an aquarium or making water changes (preferably after adding Seachems Cichlid Lake Salt) and between water changes as needed to maintain pH. Sachems Malawi/Victoria Buffer is formulated to maintain a pH between 7.8 and 8.4, depending on the amount used. To attain a lower pH than 7.8, you may use Seachems Acid Buffer in combination with Malawi/Victoria Buffer. To attain a higher pH than 8.4, use Tanganyika Buffer.
