    Yes - I have been doing so for many years, and it works just as well as any shop-bought additive - actually better, because you KNOW what you are putting in.

    Have a look at this thread: Chemical equivalents - Hennie's Corner

    Hi Martin - MOST experienced and semi-experienced reefers start experimenting with DIY calcium/alkalinity supplements....... and they end up sticking with it at some stage....

    So - this cannot be "bad at all", hey?

    The only problem with DIY supplements - is that one CAN overdose, resulting in some VERY VERY bad end results.....
