    This has certainly been on my mind as I have one coming in the mail (Precision Marine 422).

    I actually use Calcium & a Kalk Reactor. They are both controlled by a Aqua Controller II.

    I use both as well... my ca reactor is controlled off a Milwuakee 122 and my kalk is stirred in the am hours and dosed 24/7 via auto top-off(in line with ro/di to sump).

    Nope, just too lazy! Actually my Marine Evironment 2 Part Salt does the trick for my soft and LPS corals.

    I've got way to much LPS in my tank, they just suck the calcium right out of the water :D

    Well I have to say.. I've had this Precision Marine 422 for a week or two now and I am in love. It's really easy to adjust (especially with a Reef Fanatic pH controller) and my water quality is right on the mark now. Before I always had problems with alk and calcium and pH. Now everything is stable. Last test was 4 meq/L alk, 400 calcium and 8 plus pH. :) I highly recommend them!
