I find it hard to believe that the Profile caused your hardness problem.  I
used 20# of it in a 72 gal. and 8# in a 29 gal., and never encountered any
such problem.  In fact, other than some stupid things I've caused myself
(read my previous posting), these are the most stable tanks I have.

Maybe you should check the sand you used for something odd.
