    hi adee im currently doing this with my calcium reactor but i found that the 9:1 ratio
    was insufficient in maintaining the MG usage im using a ratio of 7:1
    The MG media seems to require a lower ph than the CA media therefore the additional amount compensates

    i wouldnt exceed a ratio of 7:1 as this will increase the alk to quickly

    Bye the way your tanks rocks :thumbup:
