    Hydrated lime comes from quicklime that has been treated (slaked) with water(that can contain high levels of NO3) and is known chemically as calcium hydroxide.

    Can the lime powder contain NO3?
    I have made a batch of slaked lime BP Grade and NO3 readings are 2.5ppm
    When testing my RO Water NO3 are undetectable.
    What is the best dry form of Calcium to use for marine aquaria?

    Thanks
