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.

thanks
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

I'm trying to finally get my Ca levels up above 400 and was searching for info on the Ca/Alk interdependency and think I found the article you were talking about...

http://www.reefkeeping.com/issues/2004-12/rhf/index.php

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...
