The Continuum advantage.
Basis African Cichlid Buffer is a high quality, multi-component blended buffering system designed to raise the alkalinity (buffering capacity) of African Cichlid and other hardwater aquariums and automatically regulate the pH. It will hold pH stable over a wide range of conditions providing for safety of the entire system.
Use in aquarium keeping.
Proper control of pH and alkalinity are among the most critical functions of maintaining any aquarium. Continuum recommends that you maintain an alkalinity level as specified in the directions. Proper pH for specific lake cichlids can also be maintained. These are: Mixed Cichlids 8.1 to 8.5, Malawi Cichlids 7.8 to 8.6, Tanganyika Cichlids 8.3 to 9.2, and Victoria Cichlids 8.0 to 9.0.
