    Can you recommend a good brand of this product???

    There are premade buffers that you can try. Google "Malawi buffer" "cichlid buffer" or "cichlid salt". Many people also make there own buffer using salt, epsom salt, and baking soda. This is probably going to be the cheapest way to do things. I believe seachem makes a good malawi buffer also.

    Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Inc. has a line of buffers called Proper pH. They are very good at bringing the pH to a specific point (the line includes 6.5, 7.0, 7.5, and 8.2, you will want the 8.2). I use that and Seachem's Cichlid Lake Salt.
