Innovator, you beat me to it...
mike3epanda - if I remember right, you've had about 3 different tanks over the course of 2-3 months. Slow down. It takes 2-3 months to just get ONE tank up and running, let alone stable. Stop with the kalk
, as if done incorrectly will screw up your alk
and pH. Get your water parameters under control, one step at a time. If you're bound and determined to put additives in your tank, do them only one at a time until you understand how each one individually is effecting your tank. Throwing multiple things into your tank, and then trying to figure out why your water parameter are out of whack are a recipe for frustration and never figuring out why things are happening. Your coraline algae will wait for you! Right now, you've got other things to deal with.
By the way, in researching a little about Chemi-clean on Fenner's website (www.wetwebmedia.com
- check it out if you haven't already) it kind of sounds like it probably has some variety of erythromyicin in it to start with. Not sure though, as obviously the manufacturer isn't going to tell you exactly what's in it.
