If you have a monster skimmer, maybe it would prevent a cycle. A seaclone is not going to present any issues IMO
. I agree that it may help it along.
calcium is at 460 and my KH is at 17. I am adding Kalkwasser because i was told this would speed up my coraline growth.
can drive up Ca
to the point of precipitation. Unless you have stoney corals, and more than just a couple small ones, there is no need to use kalk
. W/ those Ca
numbers you posted coralline will have no problem growing if provided good lighting and good water (NH3
, nitrite free, low NO3
). Never dose anything you don't or can't test for regularly.
EDIT- your Alk
is very high. You need to stop dosing immediately and keep up the PWC
's. I would do 30-40% at a time. Alk
should not go above ~12.6 dkh
. There is no need to run Ca
above 450 either.
