    Calcium and KH levels are fine. What are you currently dosing/adding to keep parameters stable?

    Dangerously high levles of calcium depends on what your KH is. The two are closly linked and need to be in balance with each other. Its not that the calcium itself becomes toxic, it just makes it extremly hard to keep other parameters in check. If calcium is too high compared to other parameters you do also run the risk of a snow storm - ie, all the calcium precipitating out of solution. Ther is an excellent article on KH?calcium levels somewhere on the forum..ill see if i can find it quick.

    If your calcium reactor is keeping your parameters stable, then theres no need to add a kalk stirrer.
