I just tested my calcium at 800 ppm
I was told that if calcium was too high it would precipitate out, so i wasnt worried about overdoing it. And ive never added calcium before so i thought i had to catch up.
Ok, i dont have alot that uses calcium quickly at this point (ie no stony corals), and since ive been adding it, it makes sense that my calcium is high.
is at 5 meq/L (*2.8= 14 dkh
), but as an experiment i added a little bit of buffer and it instantly turned white with precipitate.
Is 800 too high? Are there any ill effects of high Ca
pH = 8.2
= 5 meq/L = 14dkh
= 800 ppm
Ive heard supplements really make the difference, Ive got Mg
, Reef Advantage Ca
with some Mg
and strontium, lugol's solution iodine, and kalkwasser. Does that sound like a good lineup ?
