    Well, I know it is partially my fault, but green hair algae has all but ruined my love of this hobby. My tank has looked like an Irish Chubaka since late November. I had the entire tank disassembled in late January when it was moved from Woodbury to Cottage Grove and the entire tank scrubbed and...

    OK, I finially got my Pinpoint pH monitor and my pH during the middle of the day is 8.00! :arg: What should I do to raise the pH safely? I use Kent Superbuffer occasionally, should I use more of it? It says it will raise the pH to 8.0-8.3, but I want the pH to be closer to 8.3 don't I? :help:

    If I were to put some kalk or limewater whichever into a 5 gal that I use for top offs, let it sit and circulate for a a day would that be a good practice? Or do you have to drip it?

    So I was thinking... The Ksp (kinetic solubility constant)f or calcium hydroxide (kalk). is 5.5x10^-6 at room temperature 22-25C. Which means that a saturated solution contains 0.028 moles/liter. This is converted to 1.122g/l taking the mass of calcium to be 40.078 g/mole. There are 3.785...

    I have been strictly dosing kalk only. I've heard that there may possibly be left over hydroxide ions. Are there any buffers and/or additives I can use to help "pair" these off? Also, I was wondering if anyone has used SeaLab No28 (someone suggested it)? Thanks........

    Hey, all, Is there a list of commonly used acronyms and what they stand for around this site somewhere? I'm trying to figure out what some of them mean through my reading here and other places. Sure would help to know the terminology! LOL Melissa

    Hey all I got the reef fever...I want to start automating my tank. The first step to being closer to my easy chair is to build a Nilsen auto top off system. I was wondering if anyone has done the same. I found a really good design in DIY section. I was looking for a dosing pump that is...

    sometimes the amount of acronyms on this list makes me feel like i am in the military. i've figured out several of them, and i was hoping i could be corrected if i am wrong, and have others post some definitions to help newbies like me. here's what i (think i) know so far: RO= reverse osmosis...

    is it a waste of time to drip kalkwasser during the day? is it just forming chalk deposits when ph is high around 8.4? I drip now 24/7 but was wondering if it would be wiser to just drip at night. I see a problem with that though. I have a partition in the sump that would make the pump run dry...

    seems like awhile ago I saw a link to a list of abbreviations regularly used in the reefing world (like LFS), but, of course, I didn't bookmark it, and I can't find it now. Anyone know where I might find that? thanks.

    Anybody ever see these in a LFS? I know someone who got one for his reef! No, not me!

    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...
