True to a point but do you know if you are adding enough?,personally i think people rely way too much on calcium reactors to replace all needed minerals esp if other things like filtration also use some of what the calcium reactor is adding.

I may be wrong here, but I dont think that much potassium is deposited in the skeleton. I think it is primarily used by the coral flesh for certain biological functions and is also heavily utilised by bacteria and algae.

The test looks interesting if pricing is right.
Why do left-over nuts never match left-over bolts?
