    Hi everyone,

    What is the easiest way to measure how much bicarb and calcium to add to my tank? 500 l display and 150 l sump. I have been adding 2 teaspoons of Bicarb in the morning and 2 teaspoons of calcium at night. I am just scared of overdosing or under dosing. I am doing tests and it seems to be stable.

    You need to test as each system uses these at different rates.
