    About a month ago, the kalk was low in my reactor, and I had no more, so I ran to the LFS store for some more. I do not remember the old brand I was using, but what I bought was Seachem Reef kalkwasser. I completely emptied the kalk out of my reactor since it was time for a cleaning, and...

    Ok.. I have, what I have finally identified as digitata hydroids, popping up ALL OVER my rocks. At first I thought they looked kindof cool, before I knew they sting things. Now, I think they are gross and I want to get rid of them. I made the mistake of trying to get one off the rock and little...

    I've tried most anything... injecting with kalk, injecteing with the high pH Calcium part B...etc. Finally took some other advice and made a paste of pickling Lime, placed it in a syringe with a large gauge needle. I stabbed the boogers and then laid a blob of paste on their hole in the rock...

    Just added a Kalk drip system to my tank. I'm in the big-time now. :p I'll report back on how long it takes me to go through a gallon. Any suggestions on how long a gallon should take to be added to 38 gallon system? I'm thinking one gallon per weekish? Anyways probably not that important...

    I found it at Walmart today in the canning section. The ladies working there didn't know what it was but pointed me to the canning area and viola! Ball Pickling Lime... $1.47 for a 16 oz jar. Just thought I'd share in case anyone else wanted to get kalk at grocery store prices. :)

    I know I'm being cheap, but for those that dose... I recently read that pickling lime and Kalkwasser have the same essential ingredient (calcium hydroxide). Further, that pickling lime can be used in the place of Kalkwasser as a calcium supplement. The main advantage of Kalkwasser is that it...
