kalk = Kalkwasser I use Mrs Wages Pickling Lime.. i would suggest reading as much as you possibly can before even deciding on using Kalk.. If used incorrectly It can have extremely bad side effects.. You can take a tank that has been running great and turn it into an ever long battle just trying to keep you levels in check.. That said Kalk is a very good thing if used correctly..

Hth,
James
