Tanganyika Bufferï¿½ 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 9.0ï¿½9.4. For optimum replication of the Tanganyikan environment, use with Cichlid Lake Saltï¿½ and Cichlid Traceï¿½.
Sizes: 250 g, 500 g, 1 kg, 4 kg, 20 kg, 100 kg
Use 5 g (1 level teaspoon) for each 40ï¿½80 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. HINTS: 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 Seachemï¿½s Cichlid Lake Saltï¿½) and between water changes as needed to maintain pH. Seachemï¿½s Tanganyika Bufferï¿½ is formulated to maintain a pH between 9.0 and 9.4, depending on the amount used. For lower pH, use Malawi/Victoria Bufferï¿½ (pH 7.8ï¿½8.4), either alone or in combination with Tanganyika Bufferï¿½.
