The Kent one doesn't say which is which so I assume part A is the buffer?

I might be wrong, it could be the calcium first followed by the alkaline. Although the Kent does not say what Part A and B are. The content say A contains "calcium" and B contains "sodium and potassium". So looks like B is the buffer. I always thought you have to buffer it first before adding calcium.

Part A is the buffer and part B is the calcium. A good rule of thumb is always dose buffers in the AM when pH is at it's lowest. It will impact the tank much less. The Kent can have a decent affect on pH as well. How soon after you can dose the calcium (part B) will depend on the amount of water flow you have but generally speaking an hour or so should be fine. If you are not sure wait longer.

Cheers
Steve
