We have been asked about providing calcium to balance the raw meat portion of their diet. The considerations and calculations are provided here, the supporting tables are included under the vitamin mineral heading but linked below.

Sample calculation

A 20kg animal requires 3000mg of calcium and 1500mg of phosphorus,

    * 1kg of lean beef contains 100mg Ca and 1600mg P, so the remaining 2900mg of Ca has to come from a supplement

            eg: 7.5g of calcium carbonate          

                or 20g calcium lactate

Because bone meal contains P as well, you cannot in practice balance the diet with it!

The calcium carbonate comes out ahead as a smaller (and cheaper) volume, but the calcium lactate can be given in water which the carbonate cannot.

AquaSed -does what it says on the tin! -

I hope Aquased becomes the norm in most fish keepers medicine cabinets.

Many, many thanks -

 I am not sure of which staff member dealt with my order for chloramine T, but I would just like to say a massive thank-you for getting the item in the post as quickly as she did. To my mind her actions were above and beyond the normal call of duty and I really appreciate it.
