Re: Calcium Chloride
Someone posted a day or so ago wondering what people did regarding dosing
with this compound (Greg Tong?). After observing gnarled new growth on a
large E. bleheri in my community tank (which I interpreted to be a Ca
deficiency) I began dosing with a mixture of 1tsp CaCl2, 1tsp of epsom
salts dissolved in 1 pint of tap water. I have een adding about 5ml of
this solution with water changes. The E. bleheri has been growing
quickly, and the Val have finally begun to put out runners. I think this
has cured my problem.
Be aware that this combination of solvent and solutes isn't _that_
soluble; I get some precipitate in the bottle. I guess it's a shake well
before using thing.
