OK, after all the reading now I understand... that said as of right now I do not have a sump. Is there a way (for now) that I can add my needed calcium/alkalinity, I have changed over to Reef Crystals and that has helped but still not there. Correct me if I am wrong.... Say I was to dose with Kalkwasser this needs to be a constant drip say every night and/or 24/7!?!? Can I dose with something like B-Ionic instead, is there something else out there? The problem is my tank just is not set up to drip anything without looking goofy in the living room, I have seen all the DIY drip methods and none will look good sitting on the top of my tank. If it was something that could be set up say once a week that would be fine with me but a continuous setup isn't practical right now. As of right now I am not to concerned about the cost of B-Ionic, shouldn't have to use it all that long since I am working towards a RR tank.
