First thing, is you gotta verify the test. Take a sample of water to the LFS
and get them to test for CA
. No offense to the Hagen people, but theior test kits do not instill confidence in the reefkeeper in me
I do not believe your test is accurate, there should be a snowstorm going on in your tank. What is the ALK
level? What is the Mg
? What is the PH? Kalk
will not raise one level and not the other. If the Alk
was out of balance with the CA
will not restore the balance, you would have to buffer until the levels were in balance and then dose Kalk
to maintain the balance.
FWIW, I use Salifert test kits, I've also had good luck with Seachem kits and Hach.
