For aquarium biotopes: to achieve ideal water values for aquarium dwellers from the Malawi and Tanganyika Lakes
Nature at Home – Home for Fish and PlantsFish and invertebrates need to feel as much at home in the aquarium as in the wild. Transform your aquarium water into biotope-like water to protect your aquarium dwellers. Like many tropical waters the waters of Lake Tanganyika and Lake Malawi have a special feature: Their carbonate hardness is higher than the general hardness. That's because soda sources supply the lakes with a lot of carbonates, which are bound to sodium and not to calcium or magnesium. As only calcium and magnesium are part of the general hardness, these sodium bicarbonates increase the carbonate hardness, but not the general hardness. Therefore, the KH in both lakes (and many other tropical waters) is above the GH. For species-appropriate keeping and breeding of the lakes' animals it is advisable to reproduce these special water parameters. This can be achieved by adding JBL Aquadur Malawi-Tanganjika. Advantages of the JBL water conditioners:Addition of essential mineral salts, quick raising of the species-appropriate carbonate hardness, stabilisation of the pH level, promotion of well-being, health and spawning readiness of the cichlids, increase of the hatching rate of juvenile fish, promotion of growth and brilliant colours, ideal water values as found in the wild.
