Seachem Cichlid Lake Salt


Replicates the environment of African Cichlids
Contains proper amounts of calcium, magnesium, sodium, and potassium
Affects hardness only, not alkalinity or pH
All doses given for 40 L (10 US gallons).

Tanganyika: Use 11 g (1.5 teaspoons).
Malawi: Use 5.5 g (3/4 teaspoon).
Victoria: Use 3.6 g (1/2 teaspoon).

Dosages are based on DI or RO water; for other water, measure hardness (GH) first, then add according to need. For reference, the Tanganyika dose raises dGH by 8.8 units. The Malawi dose raises dGH by 4.4 units. The Victoria dose raises dGH by 3 units.

We recommend the following GH ranges:

Tanganyika: 3–5.5 meq/L (8–14 dGH)
Malawi: 1.5–3meq/L (4–8 dGH)
Victoria: 1–2 meq/L (3–6 dGH)

TIPS: Use when setting up an aquarium and when making water changes. To add salt to an established tank, base dose on water being changed. Do not use salt when simply replacing evaporated water. It is best to dissolve the salt in freshwater before use.
