Hello, I'm struggling to understand the relationship between alkalinity and calcium levels in my tank. I’ve read a ton about it but I’m still confused. I have a high level of calcium (500) and low alkalinity (7) I’m not sure how to address this. I have B-Ionic calcium buffer system with component 1 alkalinity and component 2 calcium but I’ve never used it. Can someone help me out? Specifically can you tell me what you would do in my situation. I have a 13.5 gallon fluval evo tank. I also have a protein skimmer attached For coral I have some mushrooms and Xenia, a pink birds nest coral, zoas, and some leather corals. Additionally I have a coco worm (hard tube feather duster), a clownfish, 2 cardinalfish, and one tiny goby.
Hello everyone, I just want to share my results since I started my DIY algae scrubber and vodka dosing. Last mid June I started my DIY ATS and vodka dosing and results are finally up to par. I have a 40 gallon breeder reef tank with softies, LPS and a couple of SPS and a 10 gallon sump which where I built my ATS. I use API reef master test kit and the results up. I just want to share this because a lot of people are afraid of doing carbon dosing using vodka. before I started with this experiment here are my parameters first picture was before my nitrates are undetectable Phos 1ppm Nitrates 60ppm cal 380 kh 10 SG 1.025 Ph 8.0 after 2 1/2 months here are the results 2nd picture is the nitrates already undetectable. Phos Undetectable Nitrates Undetectable cal 420 kh 11 SG 1.025 ph 8.0
