JBL Aquadur Minerals for Soft Water & RO Water
Mineral salt water conditioner to raise the hardness of freshwater aquariums.
To create aquarium water that meets the demands of fish, invertebrates and plants: to achieve ideal water values for freshwater aquariums, for increasing hardness of soft water, to add minerals to osmosis water.
Constant water values: an increase of carbonate hardness as advised by experts and the stabilisation of the pH level - prevents a sudden drop in pH.
JBL Aquadur Minerals for Malawi & Tanganyika
Mineral salt water conditioner to raise the hardness of Lake Malawi/Tanganyika aquariums
For aquarium water to suit both fish and plants: to achieve ideal water values for aquarium dwellers from the Lakes Malawi and Tanganyika
Water values close to nature: adding it increases the carbonate hardness more than the general hardness.
API Aquarium Salt, 454g
All natural salt, made from evaporated sea water, promotes healthy gill function, reduces stress and loss of electrolytes.
Used to improve the efficiency of medications and reduce the harmful effects of nitrite.
Waterlife 6.5 pH Buffer 180g
Lowers pH and hardness of tap-water for acid loving fish and plants.
A true buffer, which softens and acidifies tap-water for acidophilic fishes and plants. Once the right amount of 6.5 Buffer has been added a pH of 6.5 will be achieved and maintained. This mechanism makes 6.5 Buffer a safe method of adjusting pH.
Creating ideal water conditions for acid-loving fishes and plants
Softening the calcium carbonate/bicarbonate conditions to zero
Waterlife 7.2 pH Buffer 160g
Adjusts and stabilises pH to 7.2, produces neutral to slightly alkaline water conditions suitable for most community species.
Creates ideal conditions for most community tropical fish and plants that prefer a neutral pH
Will increase the pH to 7.2 in low pH aquariums, and decrease pH to 7.2 in high pH aquariums
Increases the buffering capacity of the water to stabilise the pH
Waterlife 8.3 pH Buffer 230g
Waterlife 8.3 Buffer will raise and maintain the pH of aquarium water up to 8.3 by increasing the temporary hardness.
8.3 Buffer will not increase the pH of aquarium water above 8.3 if used as directed.
For use in seawater, brackishwater, tropical freshwater or coldwater aquaria.
Check pH and dKH levels regularly since naturally occuring acids will erode the buffer over time.
Seachem Cichlid Lake Salt, 250g
Seachem’s Liquid Cichlid Lake Salt is a chemically sound blend of salts designed to replicate the natural environment of cichlids. It contains all physiologically essential elements such as magnesium, calcium, sodium, and potassium.
Seachem Malawi / Victoria buffer, 300g
Liquid Malawi/Victoria Buffer is a blend of carbonate salts designed to enhance the natural environment of cichlids by increasing hardness, buffer capacity, and pH.
It is formulated to maintain a pH of 7.8–8.4. For optimum replication of the Malawi/Victoria environment, use with Cichlid Lake Salt.
Treats 450-900 US gallons (1700-3400 L).
