Calcium I use a hot tub calcium booster (Eco Correct 80). Calcium chloride if memory serves me correct. $15 for 4 kg. lasts a longgg time.

Alkalanity is simply baking soda (3 tbsp for a 5 gal ATO every 5 days).

Magnesium was 8 parts Dow flakes (magnesium salt for ice melting) to 1 part Epsom salts. But the new IO RC don't seem to need mag help.

Yeah, CO2 is always food grade, even if it's for extinguisher purpose, it serve for the beer brewing purpose too.

But the ice melting calcium chloride... Means.... Made for put on the floor outside... Not specially in the aquarium.. This is why i'm skeptical
