    Hi, I have a 93 corner heavily stocked with SPS. Recently, I added a DP4 dosing pump to keep up with tank demands on Cal/Alk and Mag and after about a month it seems to be working using ESV B-Ionic 2 part and Mag.

    Hello All, I'm having some trouble keeping alkalinity levels above 7.5-8 currently. The levels steadily decline after weekly water changes and checking (Salifert test kits) every other day. I'm currently doing 150ml/day using BRS additives. It seem that no matter how much I increase the...

    Hi, Can anyone tell me if it's safe to use magnesium chloride and calcium chloride (dow flake) etc in lieu of the same by BRS? The bulk products are significantly cheaper. I know that both are the same however I have heard and read the bulk de-icer products sometimes contain impurities. Are...

    I've had great success dosing B-Ionic. When I dose B-Ionic I only have to add bottle 1 which is Alk. I recently came across a DIY Alk mixture by Randy (Receipe 1). I'd like to switch because it's much more economical. - Has anyone switched from B-Ionic to the DIY? - Also I noticed ESV...
