It says it's deionized water and calcium chloride...How much should I add to get my calcium level up to a desirable level? It's for marine aquariums, but I figure it will work...Also I have seen some people putting tums in for a calcium source, are there any ingredients that would harm the fish? How many tums would you add to raise the calcium from zero to a desirable level?

If your dosing a marine tank with calcium, do you know what your calcium levels are first? Most people keep calcium in the 300-350s... I would stay away from tums...it wont add enough calcium to do any good.

So how much would you suggest I dose? Could I do one large dose or should I dose smaller doses?
