*Chemically sound blend of mineral salts for African Cichlid aquariums
*Adjusts aquarium water parameters to replicate natural cichlid environment
*Contains all physiologically essential elements to ensure aquarium cichlid health

Allow your Rift Lake Cichlids to grow and thrive in your aquarium. Seachem Cichlid Lake Salt is a blend of inorganic salts formulated to replicate the natural waters of African Rift Lake cichlids, containing all essential elements, such as magnesium, calcium, sodium, and potassium. Plus, includes trace elements such as iron, manganese, and iodide. Contains no harmful or unnecessary ingredients such as nitrate, phosphate, or arsenic.

Recommended Dosage and Directions for Use:

Origin Dosage 250 grams treats
Tanganyika 1-1/2tsp. for 10 gallons 160 gallons
Malawi 3/4 tsp. for 10 gallons 350 gallons
Victoria 1/2 tsp. For 10 gallons 500 gallons

Conditions for Central and South American cichlids vary widely, but the Malawi or Victoria dose will benefit most of these cichlids.

pH Buffering: Seachem's Tanganyika Buffer™ (pH 9.0-9.4) and Malawi/Victoria Buffer™ (pH 7.8-8.4) should be used to adjust carbonate hardness and pH. This salt is compatible with Seachem's Neutral Regulator™ and it may be used to achieve lower pH for some American cichlids.

HINTS: Use when setting up an aquarium and when making water changes. To add salt to an established tank, do so when making water changes, basing dose on water being changed, not the aquarium volume. It is best to dissolve the salt in freshwater before use. Avoid using salt when simply replacing evaporated water.
