LOL, it's only the stuff that makes a DC work.

I know there is a member here that sells it but his name escapes me. You can probably search him up though. I made my own though and it works splendidly. Just used baking soda, Distilled water, a little math and some trial and error.

Ohhh okay haha that makes sense.
I was thinking it was something more than water+baking soda.

KH standard website. 500ml bottle should last for about 2yrs if using for one tank only. Been changing my 2 DC's solution every 2 weeks and haven't even budge the level really, well worth it IMO @ $15.50 for a lab prep'd standard.

Hey kookm, check out my latest:75 Gallon obsession I'm pretty happy so far. Only think that I'm not thrilled with is I bought a used Coralife 260Watt PC on e-bay. Got a great deal but I'm afraid it might not be quite enough. We may need to talk again after Christmas if you still have your Halides for sale.

(sorry for the hijack to the op.)

I made my own known 4 dKH using billionzz's prcedure. You can buy them already made from this person http://liquidarthome.net/khstandard

I belive that backsunshine sells drop checkers and known dKH solutions.

I have a bunch of vials here that I need to mix up. Then I will have a ton of 4 dKH solution.
