    Not sure if you remember the 400g tank I photographed? Well he doses kalk only. However, the more I research kalk, the more I fear overdosing. Did you have it set up with an ATO or stand alone?

    Yeah it's a fear. I was stand alone dripping it with my Apex controlling on/off at certain pH levels. Seemed to work pretty good. Seems most people I read using it not in a dedicated reactor are using it in ATO.

    Update. Still chock full of algae, really just been on cruise control for a while. Kind of been neglected to an extent....still surprised at how well this tank is doing for my shoddy maintenance/care. Here are some quick bad photos of a filthy tank!

    This tank is roughly right at 3 years old now, though I did have one crash a year in but ran the tank through it, so 3 total but 2 as it stands now.
