Rift Lake Chemie  - 500 g - 1.1 lb.  
Item #:242158
Availability:Usually ships in 2-3 business days

Rift Lake Chemie adjusts the chemistry of purified water to conditions similar to those in the African Rift lakes. Ideal for Cichlids from Lakes Malawi, Tanganyika, and Victoria. Chemie provides proper ratios of calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, and sulfate to mimic lake conditions without increasing the tank's alkalinity.

Package Size 1.1 LB. - 500 G



Do not add this product directly to an aquarium without first diluting in water as directed.

Basic Instructions and Guidelines:
Dissolve 1/2 teaspoon of product per 20 US gallons of aquarium water in 8 fl. oz. of fresh water; add this solution to aquarium to establish proper water chemistry and when performing water changes.
Advanced Instructions and Guidelines:
Create a stock solution by dissolving 2 teaspoons of Rift Lake Chemie in 8 fl. oz. of fresh water (preferably purified); each ml of stock solution will increase the total dissolved solids (TDS) in 1 US gallon of water by ~13.7 ppm or ~0.12 dGH. [Reference: Each g of Rift Lake Chemie will increase the TDS in 1 US gallon of water by 428.7 ppm.]
If initial TDS in aquarium is below desired level, add stock solution at maximum rate of 10 ml per 20 US gallons daily until desired TDS is attained, then dose as needed and add to purified water when performing water changes.
Maintain TDS within a range of +/-20 ppm. A sensible starting point when maintaining specific Rift Lake biotopes is to use the following TDS guidelines:
Lake Victoria: 75 - 125 ppm
Lake Malawi: 150 - 200 ppm
Lake Tanganyika: 425 - 475 ppm

Salts of sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium.
