Hav the kalk
drip ready to go just want to research more into the whole mixing process..
Calcium in salt will get u started but te way it works you will end up with less and less over time.
If you start with 450ppm and the corals/ inverts use 50pmm, you're left with 400 now you do a water change for 20% and your salt has 450ppm you're going to have less than 450 ppm
in your tank now. So keep doing this for a year and your system could be running really low on ca
that's why the kalk
drip. It also keeps the alkalinity in check and the ph more stable, encourages coral and invert growth increases skimmer efficiency and macroalgea growth. Oh and it tops off automatically.. Lot of good stuff for 12 bucks. Downside? Setup, DIY, constant testing, daily maintenance.
However how about other trace elements such as strontium, iodine, magnesium, molybdenum ... Etc?
Do not mean to hijack thread but to share and learn.
