If you have questions on the best way to mix/drip it, I have an excellent article on my website written by a fellow Reefer, Kip.

I think the real issue between the builder's lime and the pickling lime is one of quality control. THE pickling lime is intended for food products and therefore probably has a different set of standards for safety. I would be more confident about the level of purity of the food product.

Thanks all for the advice, I think I will stick to my normal regimen of Seachem products, since my results are great, for the time being. I still want to explore farther though, because the hydrated lime is considered safe for vegetable gardens I wonder what standards of quality control are for it. Does the pickling lime offer a list of ingredients on the back? If so could someone post, I would like to compare. Here's more about the chemistry of hydrated lime if anyone is interested...or is it just me? http://www.advancedaquarist.com/issues/dec2003/chem.htm
