    Water Change Question

    which ever works best for you!! I personally like weekly water changes because it's easier for me but if you're not able to do it weekly, monthly is ok too.

    calcium help?

    What is your alkalinity level?? Don't try to raise the calcium level with the kalk... you're correct that it is intended to "hold" the levels. Reef Advantage will work to increase the calcium level but you need to know your alkalinity reading.

    Lake Bonnivile Tufa rock

    There are many people in the Salt Lake valley that use that rock with great success. The rock was supposedly formed like 3200 years ago. I personally have never used it but again many are... Look up the Wasatch Reef Club

    is continuous carbon use neccessary???

    I agree with Tizzo... in the past I have ran carbon 24/7, once a month & never. Now I'll run carbon every once in a while when the water needs polished.

    T6 Lights

    I just looked it up real quick and what they are is Power Compacts... which do well for soft reef or FOWLR aquariums.

    Can I add something to a tank cycling for a week with LR from a year old tank-?

    Normally about 4-weeks. There are many factors but if the new 125lbs of LR is still curing it will be about 4-weeks. It sounds like the cured LR is keeping up with any ammonia/ nitrites from the other rock at this point.
