    Yah, you would probably notice a drop more so than a drop in 20 ppm Ca++, as test kits can have that much "noise" in Ca++.

    Kalkwasser

    I've been using the first two parts of the Randy's two part now for 4 days and am already seeing new growth. Have three questions...Was wondering if I should still be using Kakwasser in my top off water, can I add the two parts at the same time, and since I can't find Dead Sea Mag can I continue to adjust magnesium with my supply of Reef Advantage Magnesium? These probably sound like stupid basic questions but I get confused easily! Thanks for the help.

    You can continue adding kalk with no problems, it is pretty cheap.

    You do not want to add both parts at the same time. Until they are mixed into the water, you will have a very high calcium/alk in the area of dosing and if both are dosed together in the same area you can get a biotic precipitation of calcium carbonite.

    Any of the mag supplements will work.

    Thanks Kim

    Good info...might be why I am getting a powdery film on the water surface (been adding at the same time). I am sure happy with this recipe...1st weeks test shows that my Calcium and Alkalinity are spot on. 460 and 10dkh I did adjust my mag from 1300 to 1400.
