    lime

    ya can't. from what I heard its next to impossible to find around here and if you do it needs to be MS.WAGGS as any other might be impure. You could always buy KALK. I bought a nice size jug [KENTS] from IJO and it wasn't that costly.

    If you can find some feed stores for livestock such as farm animals, there's a good chance they carry the lime. It is safe from these stores for your tank.
