Only thing I have found with Oceanic is that the alk is a bit low for some tastes. Works good for me. Hard to find one that is perfect.

*180 gal Display, 100 gal basement sump, 33 gal refugium, 3x250 MH, 2x160 VHO actinics, zoos, some softies, LPS & lots of acros and other SPS.
*100 gal prop tank plumbed into main system w/ 2x96 PC lights and 1x150 MH,

Is this a product auto top off, or a home made device?

Yes it is called ATO- http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...1&N=2004&Nty=1

thanks for the advice I think I'll buy some B-Ionic and see how that works in my top off water.
Thanks again

Seems like a great "how-to" reference without getting too much into the chemistry aspect of it all. Thought I'd tag it on to this post since this is one of the first posts I found when I started searching for Ca info.

Oops... sorry. I just realized I posted the wrong article. While it's a good one, it's NOT the one I thought I was linking to.

THIS is it...
