    Also started dosing the optional elements today. One pump is 1ml. So my tank should need 2ml per day according to the calculator. 2 pumps per day. I can handle that 😂

    Well. 1 day down. Tested this morning, 6 am, before the first ever dose, alk was 9.2. Tested again just now, 7 pm, and the alk is 9.2. I did a single 10ml dose. If this trend continues, the 1000 ml bottle will last 100 days! 😁 I estimate my total water volume to be 60g of actual water. Will report back tomorrow 7 central 😉

    If I see a white sheen of bacteria on the glass I’ll know it’s boosting the bacteria populations. At least we are finding ways to keep this hobby interesting 😆

    That’s what I am thinking too. Supposedly ca formate carbon doses less than ca acetate. As I understand it, the product itself dosnt contain a carbon source. A carbon source is created when the ca and the formate separate and the formate breaks down in the water.

    And according to RHF, a skimmer is not necessary for carbon dosing. I’ll be putting that “quote” to the test as I dont run a skimmer.

    Non Detectable nitrate and phosphate isn’t an issue if you are vigilant about feeding coral foods like reef roids and reef chilly. Dosing ammino acids too.

    I’ve got a fuge running on my tank so added co2 isn’t actually a bad thing lol. I think that the alk being matabalized slowly is a non issue. After the first day the alk should stabilize as dosing continues daily.

    Calcium Formate not Acetate. But the implemitation is genius. 😄
