Does raising Ca effect Kh?

My Ca and Kh are slightly low (380 and 9). If I use something like B-Ionic, will the two bump up together?

While I'm not familiar with the product in question, raising ca will not affect kh, only gh. Adding sodium bicarbonate (baking soda, is it safe in salt tanks?) will raise your kh.
