    Calcium is 420/alkalinity is 5.02, 14dkh/ Magnesium is 1170. How do I fix this? Do I just add a Magnesium supplement? What are the normal range for all 3 categories?
  15. DIY Forum
    I'm trying to find a cheap DIY way to add Calc and Magnesium to my reef tank. I have a 60 gal mixed reef with a 10 gal sump. I do have a five gallon jug for A.T.O and use the Aqua Lifter Pump with a float valve to turn on/off. Is there any way I could add supplements to the ATO container? If...

    Well I have everything to get my 75 gallon up and going except for a pump for my sump. I have an undersized skimmer and dont want to have to much flow to overload it. (Vertex 80). I have a Mag 9.5 that I tried on it from my 125 gallon planted tank I am also setting up. It worked but noisy...

    I purchased a Mag 9.5 for the return on my new 50 gal with sump. I have a Octopus 150 skimmer which claims 530 GPH, so I am relizing the 9.5 may be a little overkill. My main concearn is heat and a little less concearn is noise. I have read the Eheims are cooler running than the mags. If so...
