Re: Malawi/Victoria Buffer effect on KH and GH
[QUOTE=Tech Support EH;4138]Malawi/Victoria Buffer will have no effect on general hardness, though it will raise alkalinity 1-2 meq/L per dose. Being a carbonate-based buffer, this product is a blend of carbonate salts(carbonate and bicarbonate); it therefore contains no phosphate or nitrate. It should be completely suitable for your purposes.[/QUOTE]
Hi, sorry for thread revival but this seems related to my question:)
In another thread titled "ph" it's mentioned that Malawi buffer will maintain it's ph from either a higher or lower ph values, I wish to raise the the kh in on of my tanks from 4deg to a preferred value and my tanks ph is at the same ph as the buffer will control. Is that the correct way to use the buffer to achieve that result?
Also my gh is around 8deg +/- 1deg in all my aquariums, do I use my cichlid lake salt to control that value?
