In my case they're already everywhere ^.^

Suck them out thru a towel in a bucket. Then put water back in tank. Add extra kalk to raise ph to 8.4 8.5 then slow drip to maintain. I fought them for ever until I found this method.

Try mrs wages pickling lime if you can find it. Exact same thing. I've been dosing that everyday for 8 months with great results

I went to the lfs and picked up a small valve for the airline tubing. Place container in top of the tank. And run it to sump. Turn the valve enough to drip it.

Must let mixture settle for ten minutes to get all the particles to settle to the bottom. Don't want to drip that into the tank . I'm not sure how actual kalk works from the lfs

Good question.

I just sucked as much of it out as I cud and now I'm about to make the water myself except I got the mrs wages stuff. He already said 2 tablespoons for a gallon of water but he didnt say how much of the gallon of lime wAter goes in. Help is appreciated.

I have a 75g with a 30g sump. Maybe 80 gallons with displacement....how much ya think?

On my product (Seachem kalk) they say 6 grams for 4L RODI water. So I did 1.5 grams for 1 liter, the crap have precipitated on bottom, but now I don't know HOW to dose it, and HOW MUCH.

I don't have dosing pump.... Can I add all the liter of limewater to the reef ?

Waiting for anwsers before doing anything, I don't want to mess with my nano reef for stupids algae.
