Tanganyika Buffer is a blend of carbonate salts used to enhance the natural environment for cichlids. This is done by increasing the hardness, buffer capacity, and the pH. It is formulated to maintain a pH of 9.2-9.4.
Contains: proprietary blend of powdered carbonate and bicarbonate salts.
Directions: Use 5 g (1 level teaspoon) for each 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. 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 Seachems Cichlid Lake Salt) and between water changes as needed to maintain pH. Seachems Tanganyika Buffer is formulated to maintain a pH between 9.0 and 9.4, depending on the amount used. For lower pH, use Malawi/Victoria Buffer (pH 7.8-8.4), either alone or in combination with Tanganyika Buffer.
