    Hi Guys,

    For the last few months my CA and KH has been hovering between 420 and 9 using kalk. I recently did a waterchange using NSW and my levels have come down to 390 and 7.7. They have remained there since. I would like to know if I raise Ca and KH individually how should I go about doing it.

    Once i have them where i would like it, will the kalk maintain it there or will i have to constanly tinker the levels.

    Mg has remained constant at 1350.
