I'd use the whole piece. The more calcium the better.

You already have hard water so you probably don't need much. I put a small piece in my tanks and just replace when it's gone. The cherries will nibble on it a bit when they need Ca

It sounds like a really good tank for them. 3 years old, stable, already has IAL with biofilm, some plants, doesn't need much else to thrive!

I agree with lowering temp to 78 or so. 80 is probably the highest you could go. I keep cuttlebone in my tanks, even with a GH of 8, just to make sure they have the nutrients they need. You don't need much. I just pinched off a piece with my tweezers and threw it in, along with some ground dust of the cuttlebone. I've read somewhere that too much can raise pH, but I haven't experienced that.

Good luck!
