Good question. ;)

I don't believe that it would be a problem, but I'm not a chemist. They do mix calcium hydroxide with vitamins and some amino acids in human supplements sold. :)

I think it'll be fine. Which vitamins were you going to add?

I dont know if I would want to try that. The kalk could mess up the AAs or vitamins. But all you can do is try. I got tired of dosing my AAs by hand so now I mix it in my frozen mixed fish food. That way the tank gets a small amount of AAs daily. I use Seachem or Aquavitro.

i will use aquavitro fuel first, i hope there will be no chemical reaction with kalk.
if it runs ok for a month, then i might try to put brightwell amino acid
