Hey,

I have a good amount of BRS two part (Calcium Hydroxide & Soda Ash) that I use for my tank. I mix both solutions in gallon jugs.

My question is, how much of each "Components Strong" should I mix with the BRS solutions?

Has anybody done this before?

Thank you for your help!

We recommend to dose Full method: Calcium, Magnesium, KH Buffer and Reef Mineral Salt.

You can use microelements only from separate bottles:

Thank you. I did some math and turns out your Ca, Alk are half the concentration of BRS. It takes twice as much Aquaforest solution than BRS to achieve the same increment.

I went ahead and added "Components Strong" at the adjusted ratio and purchased the Mineral Salt separately.

I really wanted to automate as much as possible without having to add more dosing pumps.
