    Is it safe to use calcium gluconate to raise calcium levels?

    Some seachem liquid calciums have gluconates in them , i was told it actually is a good thing because the coral gets "energy " at the same time as calcium.
    what i have personally found on a few occasions , is if you very much overdose ...
    The tank gets a bacterial bloom and goes milky .
    Its a shocking sight ! , but actually nothing minds it, corals and fish act like nothings changed , and i had the milky water for at least 2 weeks trying all sorts of floculents and fine media and special blend/ stability and nothing helped.

    the moment i put on a U.V sterilizer , it went away overnight.

    I only uses the sterilizer for this milky bacterial bloom .( which does not effect your ammonia nitrite ect )
