  2. How to Use Hanna Checkers to Dial In Your 2-Part Dosing RegimenVIDEO: A beginner’s guide to maintaining calcium & alkalinity
  3. Hi all, I bought myself a Calcium Hanna Checker and just tested it out. I've been having issues with low Calcium that I'm trying to solve, so I thought I'd get it to make my life easier. Previously, I was using the API test kit, and I was slowly raising my readings. Today, I got a reading of 380 ppm with it. But I tried the Hanna checker, and it told me 418 ppm.... I did some googling and found a few people saying they had the same sort of inconsistent/high results. I guess my question is, did I waste my money? Should I pick up a Salifert kit instead? Reviews on Marine Depot were positive, so I'm very frustrated about making a poor purchase/not doing enough research. I know $60 is chump change in this hobby, but still....
  4. Hi everyone, my names Dylan, and im new to this saltwater hobby but have cared for freshwater tanks for 8 years and decided this would be a next step. Anyway i just added 2 Margarita snails to my tank and was wondering if eggshells could be a good source of calcium for them? I used to do it for my golden apples and was wondering if it can be done for them? Thank:)
  5. hi guys so it has been 2 months now since i started adding coral frags( zoas, trumpet, duncan, chalice, blue ridge, plays, gsp) and a big rhodactis colony ( 20 heads) there is some algae but not terrible, 34 Gal AIO tank two clown fish i feed LS pellets, mysis shrimp every other day reefroids every week parameters are nitrates 0 phosphates 0.01 calcium 480 mag 1290 dkh 7-8 i use sachem vibrant sea salt my question is i would like my magnesium to be close to 1500 but my calcium is already high any suggestions?
  6. Hey everyone! I'm looking into setting up a basic dosing regimen for my tank using Kalkwasser and my ATO system and perhaps moving to 2-part dosing in the future when the tanks needs require it. The tank is a IM 20 fusion (guessing it has about 15 gal of water in it). The tank has been up and running for about 10 months and has had decent growth throughout most of the past 10 months. However, things seem to have begun to slow down recently. Additionally, all the zoanthids have been struggling for quite some time. I've been pretty diligent with water changes, usually changing about 2.5 gal once a week, assuming this would be sufficient to replenish the tanks calcium and alk needs and falling into the lazy reefer syndrome of not testing but once a month. However, I tested the tank this past Sunday (3 days after a water change) and got the following results: pH - 7.85 Alk - 5.7 dKH Ca - 390 ppm I performed a large water change yesterday (I've always used Coral Pro Salt) and was able to bring the Alk back up to a more acceptable 7.4 dKH. I'm going to test again today to see what the daily usage looks like. Currently, i'm planning to follow BRS's recommendation of: Low Demand - 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of top off water and go from there. I've always been super hesitant to start dosing since doing it wrong can have such dire consequences. However, since the overarching goal is to start introducing SPS into this tank, this is definitely a bridge I need to cross. So, with all that being said, does anyone have any advice / lessons learned to get started dosing Kalk? Cheers!
  7. Hi Guys, On my new 20 gal tank, I notice a large Alkalinity suck from my water. My salt (Instant Ocean) - naturally has ~10 or so dKH On Sunday (2 days ago) - I was at 7 dKH, I did a water change and got up to 7.5 dKH. I tested this this morning, I was about 6.5 dKH. I am guessing this means I lose between 0.5 - 1 dKH per day in Alkalinity. I assume this Alk suck is because my tank is about 3 weeks old, and is growing bacteria like mad, and the by-product is consuming Alk. I have a single LPS, and its brand new, not even open. I don't want to further stress him with low Alk, swinging pH, or low Ca. Its going to get tedious to try and correct via water changes, so I am thinking about dosing my tank to keep carbonate levels higher (closer to 8.) If this is just a bacteria demand (no / very low Ca demand) - can I just dose a Carbonate supplement? Or do I do a 2 part to maintain Ca levels? If you recommend a Ca supplement in addition - I have a CaSO4 dry supplement for my freshwater setup... Thoughts on using to dose as part2? (Part 1 is Seachem Carbonate).

    Question

    My DKh is staying steady yet my calcium and magnesium drop is this normal ? I do have 2 Duncan's which are growing Nicky and a hammer which is happy fully extended . shouldn't the DKH also drop some as well or can the weekly water changes keep it steady ?
