Send a message via AIM to hackteck
its use is for if you have problems keeping your calcium at a certain level so if you have problems with keeping calcium and alk stable then yes its worth it but before you get one i would test to see what your levels are over the course of a few weeks alot of times you can keep these levels steady with pwc but if you have alot of corals in your tank it might be a problem keeping it at an acceptable level

the reason im looking to get one is because i cant do water change very often maybe like once a month.

Or is there something better for me to invest in.
