American Cichlid Salt™ is a chemically sound blend of salts designed to replicate the natural environment of American cichlids. It contains all physiologically essential elements such as magnesium, calcium, sodium, potassium, and includes trace components such as iron, aluminum, and iodide. It does not contain harmful or unnecessary ingredients such as nitrates, phosphates, arsenic, lithium, or cadmium. Use Seachem’s Cichlid Trace™ to restore and maintain important trace elements between water changes.
American Cichlid Salt is formulated so that dosages vary depending on the species’ origin and need only be added when setting up an aquarium or with water changes.
All doses given for 110 L (30 gallons*). SOUTH AMERICAN: Use 2.5 g (1/2 teaspoon). CENTRAL AMERICAN: Use 1.25 g (1/4 teaspoon). BUFFERING: Acid Regulator™ (pH 4.5–5.8) and Neutral Regulator™ (pH 7.0) should be used to adjust pH. TIPS: Use when setting up an aquarium and when making water changes. To add salt to an established tank, base dose on water being changed. Do not use salt when simply replacing evaporated water. It is best to dissolve the salt in freshwater before use.
