Also, I'm glad I checked-
The "dolomite" that the hardware store sold me is actually dolomite lime.
Glad I didn't dump it in the filter...
Have to go find some dolomite :-/
and btw, I think I got most of the chalk out of the water with the W/C's.
The aponogeton has 5 new leaves in about 2 days. :)
Would crushed coral work the same as dolomite?
I have always assumed it would, but I have seen elsewhere that it will not raise hardness. Dolomite gravel should be easily attainable from a fish store, in a very small bag. I agree, dolomite lime is a different critter.
