B-ionic 2 part system..... Calcium and Alkilinity I have my levels at 400-450 cal and around 10.5 on the alk. It is a must for the coralline to grow. There are other companies that make the stuff but b-ionic is all I use and most of the guys in my reef club also use it with great success. Just follow the directions on the product you use. It will take a few weeks to get the levels to where you want because you don't want to make a big jump all at once. I switched to Ocieanic salt and that has the Cal level at 500 so I hardly use the cal additive anymore. Good luck...

Indy must be taking that vacation on the Riviera. If you want to do some DIY lighting, go to www.ahsupply.com...Their telephone number's there at the home page. I've made some purchases there and they are very reliable and they back their products. They'll tell you exactly what you need to spruce up what you already have. I suppose you can get even more DIY than that, but it could be a hassle if you don't have someone to guide you through it.

You will probably need to dose some every day in the beginning to get the levels up where you need them. You will need to test the cal and alk every other day at least in the beginning so you don't over dose the tank and you don't let the levels drop again. After a few months you should figure out how much your tank will need to be dosed every day/ every week, and then you should only need to test once a week or so. If you have no corals you should be able to get the levels up fairly quick and you should not need to dose everyday....... Trial and error....
