View Full Version : Need to check

02/29/2008, 07:18 PM
I would like to make sure that I understand what I am doing and have read.

I have started to use the lime water for dosing and stoped using the 2 part. The way I understood I should not need both as long as the lime water dosing meets the same needs that the 2 part was meeting.

Thank you for the help.

The limewater drip might be able to add enough calcium and alkalinity to keep up with demand. That depends on a lot of factors. The tank might need continued dosing with a 2-part. Only some testing over time will tell.

The tank is light on the SPS right now untill I get this all set and have a good thing going.

All that I use is limewater, but if you have a lot of SPS, limewater alone is often inadequate. If the limewater maintains alkalinity OK, then there is no need for anything else. :)
