So I'm trying to plan for some coral and have been reading up on calcium, alkalinity, magnesium, kalk
etc... I understand what corals do with these, how they bond and such. What I was wondering or should I say, thinking was, if I do a drip or a dosing pumps etc, eventually the tank will get to the levels I need because there isn't any coral using these minerals. I would assume anyway...
I'm wondering how you get the tank up to the levels you need and how you maintain them with water changes. Do you have to dose the water when mixing and have all the same levels in there as well? DO these minerals effect this fish? I think I'm more concerned at how to get these levels up to snuff without harming them.
Suggestions or examples of what you did to get started?
