Hi I started adding Calcium Chloride to my tanks to raise the calcium, Which it did. im sorry but I was told by someone on my post but I can't find the old post to get the name. But my Alk
. was high and I was told the Calcium Chloride would help bring the Alk
. down, which it started to calcium now at 470 and lowered my Alk
from 17.0 down to 11.8 over 9 days in the last 4 days my Calcium stayed put but the Alk
. rose to 13.4.
All test with new test kits not old. I don't know why the rise in the Alk
. I am figuring on doing a water change to help lower it but should I do one large 10 - 15 gal
. water change or 5 gal
. water changes over a few weeks.
I have not started to use the B-Ionic Calcium buffer system yet as my Alk
. is still high and im not sure if this will help stabilize it at this level or make it rise. Anybody have any ideas. 75 gal
. reef corals and fish (no clams yet waiting)
