Biotope-compatible aquarium water for animals from Lake Malawi and Lake Tanganyika with Cichliden Fit. The special hardening salt for East African cichlids increases the carbonate hardness by means of the total hardness. The essential mineral compounds of potassium, calcium and magnesium are contained in the ratio that meets the requirements of animals from both waters.
Your will find the values for the lakes in the table below.
|Calcium||12 mg/l||19 mg/l|
|Magnesium||41 mg/l||7,5 mg/l|
|Hydrogen carbonate||370 mg/l||136 mg/l|
|Ratio sodium : potassium||1,9 : 1||3,2 : 1|
|Ratio KH: GH||1,6 : 1||1,6 : 1|
|Ratio Calcium : Magnesium||1 : 3,4||2,5 : 1|
If animals from both Lake Malawi and Lake Tanganyika are kept in the same aquarium, it is advisable to adjust the water values to those of Lake Tanganyika. Hint: The values in the table are based on formulas and serve as reference values only. In practice, many chemical and biological processes occur in the aquarium that can use up part to the added salts. It is therefore sensible to check the carbonate hardness again after 2 days and add as required.
Please dose on the basis of the carbonate hardness and the table.
