I knew I had some research to do, I hadn't heard of this one before.you can also greatly increase the potency of kalk by adding vinegar, if your tank has a high demand
Do you get the concentrated B-Ionic?Just switch to 2 part.
As a bonus, you can set dosage of each differently if you want, as your tank changes.
I recommend B-Ionic as well.
I used DIY for years, using BRS Alk/Ca chemicals.
At the urging of some others, I switched and gave it a try.
The theory being DIY is only Alk/Ca, where B-Ionic adds other elements.
I really feel there was a slight difference, and I am usually fairly skeptical about these things.
I tried various salt mixes, but zero difference there for example.
And how long do they last you? Do you remix it when you refill your dosing containers?Yes, the big pails.
The Alk is sometimes a clump. But a powerhead takes care of that.
For me, they last months.And how long do they last you? Do you remix it when you refill your dosing containers?
I find it a little bit sketchy that the trace elements are mentioned briefly and without any details.
Thanks for the offer - but I have some left and should be able to get by for a bit. I've been buying the DYI kit from BRS as well.I have the materials to make your own if you want to come by SJ with a 1L container, I can whip you up a batch

Looks like the Ca is touching Alk on the way out. If your Alk line is the one we can see right next to it with no lower drip part, that could be how.
I run something like this to hold all my dosing tubes, and put the CA and Alk on opposite ends
