Are you guys using off the shelf garden variety hardware store endcaps, or buying aquarium-specific ones? Are they ceramic or plastic? Seems that I have seen ceramic ones before, but they may have...

I use ground dolomitic limestone that I got from Greg Watson way back when. Rather than being straight calcium carbonate, it contains a percentage of calcium magnesium carbonate. Looking at the wiki...

I use ground dolomitic limestone to raise both GH and kH and fine tune the kH with sodium bicarbonate. If you inject CO2 as I do, you need the added alkalinity to counteract the carbonic acid,...

I'm not really certain, since it was here when we bought the place, but it must not be terribly deep since it's a 6" drilled well. It has a submersible pump with a power supply rated for a maximum of...
