Yes. I have the intake tube halfway down so it doesnt pull from the slurry on the bottom. I thought kalk's maximum saturation point was 2 teaspoons per gallon? How do you drip your calcium? Do you also supplement for alkalinity?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

2 is the max it is a saturated solution just saying if you started with say 1 tsp per gallon to maintain your tank as the demand goes up you may have to increase the amount I built a cheap top off jug with a hole drilled in the bottom of it and a piece of airline attached to it with a valve in it to adjust the drip it probably didn't cost me $5

Its not impossible It just cost more.

i would stop dosing kalk and just do weekly water changes with a decent reef salt and enjoy your tank. i've always took care of my tanks this way and never had problems.
