Malawi/Victoria Buffer is a blend of carbonate salts designed to enhance the natural environment of cichlids by increasing carbonate hardness, buffer capacity, and pH. It is formulated to maintain a pH of 7.8-8.4. For optimum replication of the Malawi/Victoria Lake environment, use with Cichlid Lake Salt, Cichlid Trace, and NutriDiet Cichlid Flakes.
Use of this product properly buffers my acidic (pH 6.3) tap water to pH 8.3 Also helps my GH and KH, which are both low from tap (2 and 3 degrees!) with this buffer now proper for my Malawi Cichlids. Ease of use, no guessing. Love this product!
Seachem always makes the best products of this type. I use both this product and the cichlid lake salf mix and my fish are looking great. It is easy to use and the only drawback is the price. Kinda spendy.
has used this product for 1-3 Months.

"Effective and Consistent"
You don't have to re-add the salt many times. It buffers pretty good and it stays there for weeks! For the use of it, the price is just right, if not better.
