I've recently added a rock with some shrooms
to my system and so the time to keep on top of my Calcium and Alk
have arived. I just did a 20% water change yesterday. Readings as of 5 minutes ago:
: 7.0 (Meq/L: 2.51)
What I've purchased to keep my ca
in check is Bi-Ionic as I've heard a number of folks here use and like it and it keeps things in check.
Now, the Bi-Ionic directions say to add equal parts of each the Ca
daily. But, according to this web site, Chemistry and the Aquarium
(which is a great read mind you) It says a common mistake in adjusting the levels in the way I need to is adjusting both which ends up throwing either the Ph, KH
or both out of whack.
So, my question is should I just use the Ca
additive of the Bi-Ionic to bring my Ca
levels up, then once they're up use the product as directed, or should I use both parts right from the start?
