If the oceanic salt provides enough calcium will I just need to get the alk b-ionic?
Depends on the rate of Ca
depletion of the tank. Probably not though. When coralline really gets going, it can put a huge drain on Alk
. Then adding in corals will further drain the Ca
levels. You also must remember that with every 1 DKH
of decrease, Ca
also drops by about ~26 ppm
. If you don't add those levels back to the tank, soon your Alk
will be high and your Ca
will be low. This is why balanced additives are a must.
I heard b-ionic is better than kalk and its easier than dri method cuz if u do the drip method some things an seriously go wrong
Um, no... Overdosing the Alk
portion of B-Ionic can have the same affect as overdosing Kalk
: pH through the roof and abiotic precipitation of Ca
