Minerals for water conditioning for Malawi/Tanganyika cichlids

The carbonate hardness KH is one of the most important water parameters in aquarium keeping and for garden ponds. The KH stabilises the pH-level and therefore prevents any dreaded plunge or sudden steep rise in pH levels, both of which are equally dangerous.

In normal community aquariums and ponds, the KH should never drop below 4°KH. Even if the initial water contained sufficient KH levels, the KH in the aquarium and pond may decrease. This may be the result of vigorous bacterial activity or a lack of CO2 - with plants and algae extracting the CO2 they require from the KH. Consequently the KH decreases and the pH-level is unstable.
  • Produces sea-like hardness with the KH higher than the GH due to sodium carbonates.
  • The special characteristics of Malawi and Tanganyika lakes can only be attained using a special salt preparation without harming plants.
  • The carbonate hardness is raised above the total hardness and the combination of minerals typical for the lakes introduced to the aquarium water.
  • Fish exhibit prettier colours and the hatching rate among juvenile fish is higher.
  • Levels of the lakes: Lake Malawi: GH 5°, KH 7°, Tanganyika: GH 10°, KH 18°.
