    How does everyone that uses mrs. wages do it and how much do you dose?
  12. Northeast Florida Marine Aquarium Society
    I know alot of you use balls and wages pickling lime and have good results but I do not like the stuff. Maybe its because I am using it in a kalk reactor but these are the problems I have seen with the stuff 1) It does not remain in suspension like Seachem kalkwasser 2) it turns my reactor...
