3 days later and I have this

There goes half my calcium reactor fund...two part is a likely reality. I think if I use 5 gallon buckets the frequency of mixing up new solution will be pretty low, so it'll just come down to adjusting dosing as consumption changes just like a reactor.
 
Is there a cover for it? I though kalk can’t be exposed to air or it’s potency will deteriorate. I could be wrong but that’s the first thing that came to mind.

nope check out http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2005-01/rhf/index.htm#11, there's a graph of the potency of a stagnant kalk solution in a container without a lid. It's basically unnchanged throughout the 10 days of measurement. The theory is that the calcium carbonate crust at the surface protects the rest of the solution from CO2.
 
Yesterday I knocked over some of my rocks and ended up moving my cali tort. Was shocked at how much it's grown. Also pictured is my orange passion which rtn'ed a few weeks ago (super sad).

Took some top down shots yesterday. Radions are nearing their max intensity(I've been ramping them up for the last 80 days from 60% to 100%, reason is when my zoas started disappearing I thought PAR might be too high) and Im starting to see the colors coming out on the acros. i hope the pink on the walt disney intensifies.
