    Chelmon many of us have used or do use kalk but for many different reasons, control of PH, add alk and CA to water, bind up phosphates etc. What system do you keep fish, corals [soft or hard]?
    To add it to your system you mix it up and let it stand for a few hours then syphon of the clear liquid that forms between the sediment at the bottom and the skin on the top. Then drip this clear liquid in through a bit of airline tube over night. The drip rate must be fairly slow otherwise you will raise your ph too quickly.
