Cichlid Trace™ supplies a broad range of trace elements demonstrated* to be necessary for proper ﬁsh health and growth. Unlike terrestrial animals, fish obtain nutrients from both their food and environment. Trace elements are normally depleted by utilization, oxidation and precipitation, thus it is important to restore them on a regular basis. Cichlid Trace™ contains only those elements actually demonstrated* to be required by fish.

A: Cichlid Lake Salt is a blend of major, minor, and trace minerals to replicate African Rift Lake conditions. Cichlid Trace is a blend of trace minerals proven to be utilized by aquatic vertebrate life (ex. fish). We recommend using Cichlid Lake Salt with every partial water exchange (not when adding water to compensate for evaporation. Only water evaporates, not the minerals). I recommend to use Cichlid Trace twice a week to keep a fresh influx of trace minerals available to your fish. Some of these trace minerals are depleted rapidly and need to be replenished on a regular basis.
