View Full Version : Reef Advantage / Reef Builder
I curently use the powder Reef Advantage and Reef Builder.
I use these daily by adding 1 tablespoon per gallon of top off water. I use the Reef Advantage during monthly weeks of 1&3 and I use the Reef Builder during weeks 2&4
I would like to change to a liquid form of these items. What would you have that I could use, and would I get the same results?

I hope your not adding both Reef Advantage Calcium and Reef Builder into the same 1 gallon of water. If you add them in to the same water they will most likely precipitate out. We recommend waiting at least 30 minutes between adding a alkalinity supplement and a calcium supplement.
The liquid form of Reef Advantage Calcium is Reef Complete. Reef Carbonate is our only liquid alkalinity supplement. It will have more of an effect on the pH than the Reef Builder that you are currently using. You will get the same results with these as you have been with the powdered versions.
If you see my post above
I use Reef Advantage each day with top off water on weeks 1 & 3 of the month.
I use Reef Builder each day with top off water on weeks 2 & 4 of the month.
This has worked well but I have picked up a few programable dose pumps and need to switch to liquid forms of these products.

I'm sorry, I misunderstood. I thought you were saying that you used them both daily and then also added them too your top off water. Sounds like you have a good grasp on the use of the products.
