Thread: Kalk stirrer

I got a kalk stirrer ordered for my next tank build and got lost.....
I read a bunch of articles and am not sure I'm on it 100%...
Would you add viniger to the stirrer to help break down the cal? Should I be adding mag? Should this be dosing through my ATO system? Amounts? What do you guys recommend (in a nutshell)

I've never used kalk so I can't help you there.
On my reef tank I have a auto dosing unit with three pumps, one for alkalinity, one for calcium, and the third for magnesium. That seams to work really well for me as my set-up uses up each of those three elements at different rates. I can set the dosing amounts based on what is being used up so I don't have to worry about things becoming unbalanced.
But I also like to keep things simpleIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Are you running this in conjunction with a calc reactor?
