Yesterday I opened the Calcium reactor up to twice as much flow as usual.
At the same time I fired the Kalk reactor up again.

This is a followup to my recent desaturation test,but backwards.
Only twelve hours later the results are in with noticeable more dinos on the sand and rocks.

This leads to a conclusion that it's the main elements we add that fuel the growth, not the small amounts of numerous trace elements.
I find it most likely to be alkalinity, rather than Calcium or Magnesium that is also supplied with my Ca reactor.
There could be a twist with added CO2, but pH stays buffered.

These are repeating results so they are getting pretty solid.
