Seachem Cichlid Lake Salt

Cichlid Lake Salt ™ is a chemically responsible blend of salts designed to replicate the natural environment of Rift Lake African Cichlids. It contains all physiologically essential elements such as magnesium, calcium, sodium, potassium and contains trace components such as iron, aluminum and iodide.

Although the most important Rift Lakes basically contain the same mineral salts, they do so in widely varying concentrations. Cichlid Lake Salt ™ is formulated in such a way that dosages vary depending on the origin of the lake and only need to be added when setting up an aquarium or when changing the water. Many competing products are not much more than combinations of Epsom salt and soda bicarbonate. This does not provide complete replication of the mineral salts found in the lakes of Africa, in particular calcium and potassium. Seachem's Tanganyika Buffer ™ (pH 9.0-9.4) and Malawi / Victoria Buffer ™ (pH 7.8-8.4) must be used to adjust the carbonate hardness and pH.

Use of Seachem Cichlid Lake Salt

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, first measure the hardness (GH) and then add it as required. For reference, the Tanganyika dose of dGH increases by 8.8 units. The dose in Malawi increases dGH by 4.4 units. The Victoria dose increases 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, the basic dose on water is changed. Do not use salt when simply replacing evaporated water. It is best to dissolve the salt in fresh water before use.
