Stabilises both the pH and osmotic pressure of the water in the aquarium. Facilitates the acclimatisation of newly
imported wild fish. We suggest adding the recommended quantity of salt for the volume of water changed.
Conductivity can be adjusted by topping up with salt 24 hours after the initial dosing. Pour the salt directly into the
filter so that it can dissolve slowly. Do not pre dilute the Instant Cichlid, to prevent the pH rising too quickly. Increase the circulation of the water for 24 hours to encourage good distribution of the salt throughout the aquarium and also to stabilise the pH. It is recommended that 25-50% of the water in the aquarium is changed every week depending on fish load.
1 gram dissolved in 1 liter of RO or DI water will produce water with the conductivity of 1,300 uS/cm2.
For Lake Tanganyika we recommend a conductivity of between 600 - 700 uS/cm2
For Lake Malawi we recommend a conductivity of between 250 - 500 uS/cm2
For Lake Victoria we recommend a conductivity of between 100 - 300 uS/cm2
