I've had great success dosing B-Ionic. When I dose B-Ionic I only have to add bottle 1 which is Alk.

I recently came across a DIY Alk mixture by Randy (Receipe 1). I'd like to switch because it's much more economical.

- Has anyone switched from B-Ionic to the DIY?
- Also I noticed ESV mentions they include extra trace elements in their
B-Ionic. Are those extra trace elements in Bottle 1 or Bottle 2?
- I do water changes every 2 - 2.5 weeks with Oceanic salt and once a week
add Kent's Trace Elements. By doing this do I cover any trace elements
that B-Ionic would have added?

Any help would be great!
