    Aye - I has a 20 hex tank was that I was dripping into a number of years ago. The roller got away from me and poured a bunch of kalk. That was a quick way to cull the xenia!

    Matt do you still keep xenia? i thought i read your now doing sps. was wondering if you keep the xenia with sps

    m2434 i agree kalk needs to be researched fully before its used. and i did a lot of reading before i used it, i also starting using it on a day i knew i would be home all day to test often and watch the readings. .

    I lowered the bucket and it doesn't crate a siphon anymore. Now everything is set up and things are staying stable with just 1/2 tbs per gallon.
