When Do Calcium and Alkalinity Demand Not Exactly

For a typical reef aquarium (assuming a daily addition of saturated limewater equal to 2% of the tank's volume), the amount of alkalinity added during the course of a year is 297.8 meq/L. Likewise, the amount of calcium added is 5,957 ppm Ca ++, given the ratio of

How to increase or decrease aquarium water alkalinity ...

Rapid changes in water chemistry are far more dangerous to your fish than high or low pH, and can cause a lot of stress to the fish, or even death! This is why, when changing the pH, the water needs to be tested several times during a day, to ensure the changes are not too rapid. Ways to increase the pH in the aquarium water:
