I have come to the conclusion that I need to supplement my tank with
calcium. In particular, I am having a terrible time growing regular
old swords. Nearly everthing else thrives.
Currently I mix my water from RO with RO Right (or something like it),
as well as Baking soda and Epsom salts (about 1.5 tsp of each per 30
Since the goal is very soft water, I would rather not raise the GH
much, and I think I need the Mg in the epsom salt, so I was hoping to
replace the baking soda with calcium carbonate, which, if I understand
the chemistry correctly, would allow me to raise the KH without
raising the permanent hardness much.
Does anyone know of a source of calcium carbonate? Would, for
example, one of the reef calcium supplements serve this purpose?
Do I have the chemistry straight?
