    Found an interesting article that i read and forgot about years ago. Please take the time to read the article. it will be a blessing for your tank to have this cheap resource available to fix ph problems, help remove phosphates etc. by dosing kalkwasser the co2 in your tank is converted to kh. so it doses calcium and kh indirectly while reducing co2. How cool is that. http://www.reefkeeping.com/issues/2005-01/rhf/index.php

    Hi Mandarinman

    Just remember yes - kalkwasser does bind phosphate but it then precipitates and it later leeches back. kalk should be dosed close to a skimmer then to have the phosphates skimmed out. but then that is not to great for a skimmer pump !!:eek:


    anyways my 5c
