im planning on starting next tank with a calcium reactor soon..any recommendations on a good brand of media? I have read that certain media contains dolomite to help keep up magnesium as well. I would prefer if I can keep all three parameters stable just with the reactor.

any recommendations?

Must say, for the last couple of months I am using Blue Treasure salt to keep my parameters stable, I've even turned of my calcium reactor! Cannot think of anything else, other than changing my brand of salt, thats doing this.

I use the Caribsea ARM media (the one that looks like coarsely crushed coral).


It keeps the Ca, Alk and Mg stable (consistently reading 470 Ca, 7dKh and 1350 Mg until last week when I lowered the pH in the reactor to up the Kh).
