Biggen What two part system are you useing? I was thinking of trying that two part B-ionc from captivereefs.com.
I use the Kent Tech CB A & B additives http://www.kentmarine.com/html/tcb.html
. They are extremely easy to use. When I mix my fresh batch of SW
for a water change, I adjust the Alk
to the same levels that are in my tank (400 ppm CA
, 8-9 DKH
). Then I simply dose one capful a day from each of the additives to the main tank and it maintains those levels.
It is pretty straightforward. One thing to be aware about with these additives is that they typically contain excess salts. You can actually raise the salinity in your tank if you either don't do regular water changes or remove some of the SW
and replace it with FW
. Since I do water changes once every two weeks, I don't have this problem.
