Roger Miller? Another questions about water reconstitution.


A little while back, you gave me a recipe about how to reconstitute RO 
water.  I'm still battling algae and broke down and purchased a phosphate 
test kit.  Needless to say, I know what the problem is now.  My tap has 
phosphates of ~1 based on the Seachem test kit.  I always thought this was 
weird because nitrates were around 5 ppm.  Now I know why.  I mixed 1/3 tap 
with RO as the remaining water.  I guess I was adding phosphates also.  So, 
now I've decided to break down and get the chemicals to mix RO water.  I 
think it will be better in the long run.

Anyways, to my question.  I went to the grocery store yesterday and was 
looking at the calcium tablets.  There are so many types and the ingredients 
vary from one brand to another.  What are some of the extra ingredients that 
are in the tablets that you use beside from calcium carbonate?  I don't want 
to add something that is going to be harmful to my fish.  Thanks for taking 
to time to answer my question.
