i think hes talking about the one i posted. its not by randy, and yes it does not mention any negative drawbacks that can result. bacterial growth can be negative if a bloom develops which can rapidly reduce available oxygen in the water. a good skimmer can reduce that risk and can skim out bacteria in the water column. also a less desirable bacteria can bloom killing off the desirable ones we want that are able to reduce nitrates and phosphates. this risk also might be reduced if one doses periodically desirable bacteria like ones available in ultralith system.

does anyone know why you cant use vinegar with a kalk reactor?
i have a RO reservoir from which the kalk reactor draws its water. if i add vinegar to this RO water in the recommended mL per gallon, shouldn't it be ok?
