Seachem Malawi & Victoria Buffer
Seachems Malawi/Victoria Buffer is a blend of carbonate salts designed to enhance the natural environment of cichlids by increasing hardness, buffer capacity, and pH. It is formulated to maintain a pH of 7.8-8.4. For optimum replication of the Malawi/Victoria environment, use with Cichlid Lake Salt.
DIRECTIONS: Use 5 g (1 level teaspoon) for each 40-80 L (10 to 20 gallons*) of water each day until desired pH is attained and maintained. Thereafter, 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 the addition of Seachems Cichlid Lake Salt) and between water changes as needed to maintain pH. Seachems 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.
