I haven't decided to use kalk in my tank as yet be
I'm getting ready to start using a DIY kalkwasser auto top-off/drip using a .5 gallon juice container. Dosing 70ml of each part B-ionic everyday is getting to be a pain. Kalk
has many benefits 1. Its' cheap(food grade pickling lime as said). 2. It will help maintain PH when dripped at night. 3. It binds w/ PO4
, lowering levels. Some people even drip kalk
into the reaction chambers of their skimmer. In short it allows the skimmer to remove larger amounts of DOC
's, including PO4
. It has many benefits, I may have even forgotten one or two.
is for tanks w/ moderate to heavy daily Ca
demands. If you don't have any SPS
, or even just a few, or clams it will drive the Ca
up and cause carbonates to precipitate from the water. You have to monitor PH, Ca
, and ALK
closely when using kalkwasser.
