Formulated For Cichlid Aquariums
Finally a substrate designed specifically for the advanced cichlid enthusiast. This new formula is derived from a rare dark colored calcium carbonate which will not only maintain an exceptionally high pH and carbonate hardness but also discourage cichlids from fading into the background. A must for healthy, vibrant African cichlids. Caribsea substrates buffer to the highest pH and delivers more calcium, carbonate and trace elements than any other substrates for high pH environments like cichlid and marine tanks.
