    You can drip kalkwasser along when you top up evaporated water, preferably at night after lights out when ph tends to drop. Just needs to be added slowly, I suggest you do some more reading on adding kalkwasser around dosage and method. Using a kalkstierrer with an auto top up unit works the best though.

    get an "iv drip" from your chemist to adjust the drip rate.

    Just check your Alkalinity as well or else it doesn't matter how much calcium you put in.
