    Hi reefers. Anyone using kalwasser exclusively to raise kH and Ca? I'm trying to do that, but it doesn't seem to work. My kH has always been on the low side (7), but recently dripped to 6. Same for my Ca - 400, dropped to 360. My tank is 4x1.5x1.5. I've slow-dripped 3 litres of kalwasser solution already. Expert advice appreciated - even my easy Sps like birdnest are deteriorating. Tks much.

    I'm no expert but I don't think u can sustain a slightly heavier coral load with purely kalkwasser. Looks like it's time to start dosing. It's inevitable.
