*** Iodine ***

Red Sea Trace Colors A Iodine
CA Consumption per day randy's 61.4
CA Consumption per day Red Sea 11.3

1/10th CA = 1.1 per day Iodine
2/20th CA = .6 per day Iodine

** Potassium **

8ml seems to be break even (7 potentially)

Potassium Chloride - 8oz 227g mixed into 1 gallon is 157ppm for a 200 gallon system

1ml = .04ppm
5ppm per day is 125ml

Red Sea
1ml will raise the potassium level of 25 gal by1.75ppm (8ml/200gallon/1.75ppm).

Maintenance Starting dose will be 8ml per day

Consumption 1.25ppm per day - seems high

*** Salinity ***

Conductivity Solution
To make a 3.29 weight percent sodium chloride solution, dissolve 1 teaspoon (6.20 grams) of Morton's Iodized Salt in 182 mL (182 g) of freshwater (making a total volume of about 184 mL after dissolution of the salt). This solution can be scaled up as desired.

For a rougher measurement in the absence of an accurate water volume measurement:

1. Measure ΒΌ cup of Morton's Iodized Salt (about 73.1 g)
2. Measure the full volume of a plastic 2-L Coke or Diet Coke bottle filled with purified freshwater (about 2104.4 g)
4. Add 3 tablespoons of purified freshwater (about 45 g)
5. Dissolve the total salt (73.1 g) in the total water volume (2149.4 g) to make an approximately 3.29 weight percent solution of NaCl. The volume of this solution is larger than the Coke bottle, so dissolve it in another container.

*** Calcium / Strontium ***

1 gallon calcium chloride is 185ppm ca

Brightwell Strontium
1.85ppm strontium is 100/1 ratio & 3.7ppm is 50/1 per RHF
46.68ml 100/1
93.36ml 50/10

Randys recipe is 18% Red Sea CA+

2.8 dKH for each 18-20 ppm calcium balanced normal consumption

Break even should be 30.97ml now
Lets get to 9.0 in 1 week but will dose to 9.1 since its a constant climb
8.8-9.1 is 47.1ml - 220gallon system / 7 days = 37.69 daily
