    What type of Calcium do you add to your tank. It seems when I add Seachem Reef Adv Calcium to my tank I get a white hard film on the inside of my tank that has to be scrapped off with razor blades?? What can I add that won't do that to my tank. Or am I adding too much at one time?

    After researching calcium suplementers, I've decided to get a kalkwasser reactor, and wondering which is best. Seems the two biggest types are pump or stirrer. Any ideas on problems? I've read about scaling in the pump types, but no info on stirrer types.

    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 have heard you guys say to use pickling lime as a cheaper replacement for Kalkwasser. Has any one tried or heard anything about Balls pickling lime. I use some and it looks like it snowed in my tank and it took about 24 hours for it to disolve. Any help will be appreciated. Thanx
