    Yes coral snow is 97% pure calcium carbonate. Self mix with RODI water is less then 10% of what one paid from zeovit

    Just get some coral chips and pound them into powder.

    Those that run Calcium reactor are already "dosing coral snow".

    James this may have 2 issues
    1. Is it >97% pure and contain not other elements
    2. You need them in very fine form which I think only industrial grinder can achieve

    Mix Na2CO3(aq) or NaHCO3(aq) with CaCl2(aq).

    Ya so those reefer who uses two parts dosing are actually dosing coral snow too. How ironic...

    I believe it can work but will it change your water parameter I am not sure.
    Basically the thread is to let zeovit coral snow users know what they buy and dose.
    And coral snow when dose actually will not change any parameter in your tank water.
    But it will help to make your water clearer.

    Actually, what I meant was to mix the two separately and precipitate CaCO3. Wash the precipitate under RODI and then dose that.

    No. Your tank ph too high to dissolve the CACO3

    Excellent tip. Just ordered 98% pure Calcium Carbonate. I used to use Coral Snow in the past until the bottle ran out. Will now be using this diy recipe.

    I know its old, but its worth to bump it.

    I have been using it for a while now and my tanks is crystal clear.

    I am using calcium carbonate (molar mass 100.09) mixing 100gm in 250ml of RODI water and dosing 1ml/100ltrs for alternate days. you can see the difference.
