LFS says Joes Juice is just kalk. True?

As subject states: LFS says Joes Juice is just kalk. True?
They say that's why they don't carry Joes Juice. I need to do something quick, though, before the aiptasia takes over. Peppermint shrimp aren't an option until I catch all my mantis shrimp (3 confirmed so far).

I know kalk injections will work to kill them, though I'm not sure if it is exactly the same stuff. Try doing a search or just wait until someone more helpful than myself comes along for some dosing tips.

Well I've read that boiling water works (administered by a dropper). I'll give that a try. It's free.

I got rid of some with white vinegar injections.

I tried the boiling water on a number of them. Most of them laughed at it. A few shrivelled up and one looked like it had been burned by fire. Even the one that looked burned was back to normal this morning. Ugh. Time to get some kalk or Joes Juice.
