Very exciting! But I have never used purple up? Does it make a big difference?

Yes sir, I use it once the tank is seeded and already some growth on pumps, rocks, glass etc. it really takes off when you start dosing it. On a regular basis it literally multiplies overnight! If I put some cured rock in my tank a month later it's covered but watch your calcium levels because it has some in it and if your already are dosing with some calcium you might get so e really high levels!

Well if your coraline is going ape ****. Shouldn't your calcium be lower? Ever since my switch to LED my coraline has been taking off but my calcium levels have been real low, I've been dosing but I can't seem to get it up.

My calcium levels are good I test them a few times a week and dose accordingly. I want to make sure my lps continue to grow well.

Generally coralline is sign is a healthy system, how often do you check your calcium levels?

Every week and I've been dosing but they're still low. I can't figure out what is depleting it.

I had that issue in my last set up. I tested like every other day for a few weeks to find out how fast the calcium was being used. Then you just have to figure out how much and how often to dose the tank.
