Seachem Malawi/Victoria Buffer is a comprehensive blend of carbonate salts that have been designed for the purpose of replicating the natural environment of Lake Malawi and Lake Victoria cichlids by increasing hardness, buffer capacity, and pH in freshwater aquariums. The solution is formulated to maintain a pH balance between 7.8-8.4. Seachem Malawi/Victoria Buffer is best used when setting up new aquariums or when conducting large water changes, as well as in between water changes as needed to maintain optimal pH levels. Comes in a 1.2 kilogram container.
Use 6 grams (one level teaspoon) for each 40 to 80 L (10 to 20 US gallons) of aquarium water each day until the desired pH level is reached and maintained. Thereafter, use the buffer as required to maintain optimal pH levels, usually no more than once every two to three weeks.
