New Randy's 2 part, but now 3 part (mag) and higher PH

    One of the things that changed from a few years back to now, is the improved Calc / Alk recipe

    With the updated two part, you now get Mag, and the sodium hydroxide (Alk part) which is LYE has higher PH. What I also like about the new Alk part is it's less cloudy then sodium carbonate (baked baking soda)

    I doubled the recipe. Since I don't have many corals my dosage is 23ml of each per day.

    I had to start 2 part a few months ago when I had a mishap with my calcium reactor. I planned on doing it for a few weeks while I grabbed a couple parts for the reactor and a new pump but... I noticed the same thing and have continued for a few months now. I’m using the BRS pharma stuff. It’s been very consistent, corals are looking really good. I’m going to use it for the foreseeable future.
