[APD] adding Calcium Carbonate
I have extremely soft water, and have been having problems with calcium
deficiency. I purchased some calcium carbonate from the local beer
brewing store to add to the tank. The problem is that when I add it to
the tank, the extremely fine grained particles go into suspension and
take a long time to clear. The tank is cloudy/milky for a day or so,
then hazy for a couple of water changes.
While it is amusing to watch the currents transporting the stuff around
until the tank is a solid white, that gets old soon (I'd rather look at
the plants and fish). Any ideas on ways to add a fine powder without
creating a snowstorm?
I'd prefer to add it to the sump, so that there is plenty of water flow
to help the dissolving...
