Randy's recipe...?

I have read a lot of references to Randy's home made 2-part additive. The first part, for Alk, is baking soda if I'm correct.? In what "form" do you buy the calcium chloride for Ca maintenance?


Current Tank Info: 55gal Reef- BTA cloning hot spot. 20gal sump/fuge.

i used Prestone Driveway Heat. its Calcium Chloride. Randy is coming out with a new article in this months RK mag. its going to list different recipes for different types of Calcium Chloride. due to the way its made(forgot what Randy called it) you use 2 cups of Heat to make a gallon of buffer. works great!!

Never ask a girl over to see your crabs!!
