Hey everyone I recently bought the soda ash from bulk reef supply and mixed it up as part of the instructions with no problem, but noticed after a week or so I noticed a film starting to develop on the bottom of the container. I am using the left over container from my GFO from BRS which was washed out completely prior to mixing the ALK. Also noticed that it has a strange smell to it as well, is this all normal??

Also today is day 5 where I will be testing my levels to start auto dosing with BRS dosing pumps, I am using a Apex jr. and have 2 outlets available to plug them into. Can anyone walk me through the process on setting the time frame up for dosing CAL and ALK on the apex interface.

Thanks!

What sort of drop in alkalinity and calcium are you getting? Fwiw I would go to the apex neptune forums for that setup.
