    hey guys

    i have been realy sick for the last 2 weeks, and am battling to do daily tasks on the tank. today i was ment to add a teaspoon of calcium chloride to the tank, but instead of the crabbing the calcium tub i picked up the kalk tub. so i add a teaspoon of kalk directly to the sump. 15min later and the water is slightly murky, then i realised what i have done.

    my question is will this be a problem? a teaspoon in 650l of water?

    thanks in advance

    btw it is the waterboy kalk if that has any influence?

    Nope, should be cool, I often dose 2 TSP in one shot. The murkiness is probably the Kalk that is precipitating into Calcium Carbonate

    Probably worth checking your pH.
