The bottle says 2 drops per gal
They don't know whether you have one coral or ten, amount of LR
, etc., etc. If you have stoney corals or clam(s), especially SPS
, you should monitor the CA
values and calculate the daily usage of both. This will allow you to keep water parameters optimal and
steady. This dosing calculator may help make things easier- http://jdieck1.home.comcast.net/chemcalc.html
FWIW I prefer two part ionically balanced CA
additives such as B-Ionic or the Aqua-C brand. They also contain other neccesary elemets such as magnesium, etc. in appropriate portions to each other.
Should you minus the volume of LR in your tank when calculateing you dosing?
takes up space and therefore affects the systems total volume of water. It should be taken into account when dosing. There is a calculator some where online that gives an approx. amount of water that X
amount of LR
displaces. I'll post it if I find it.
