    I can't take credit for it really. I just cut and pasted what Randy had posted on the RC Chemistry forum :)

    *list from Reef Central Archives, posted by RHM*
    http://reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1379607

    I was going to direct one post to one article and it got me thinking we needed the list to be handy on our site. Thanks RHM!!!

    Thanks for the info.
     
  7. Great links you've compiled here, Gresham. After several hours of pouring through the Alk, Calc, Mag, Phos, and pH links, I finally have a better understanding of calcification in my tank plus some. Thanks for this post.

    I didn't compile any of them. I took the list RHF (not RHM) compiled and reposted it here :) (Don't want to take credit for some one elses hard work)
