Quick update. Orbit didn't ok the price drop from my lfs to match Dr fostersmith unless they bought at least 10 units, but no big deal I ordered them from sight anyway and with savings I am probally going to order the hydor koralia smart wave 2 power head combo for $109 with 2 of the 440's

Question: my tank is starting to use calcium/alk and mag at a pretty steady rate. Faster than I can keep up with doing wc. I've also noticed a decrease in growth with my sps. I picked up b-ionic 2 part and tech magnesium from kent to dose. Im using this website as a guide:http://reef.diesyst.com/chemcalc/chemcalc.html

Does that seem ok? I'm gonna monitor for a few more days before my wc and then check right after my wc and dose from there.

Bribo's 20 gallon rimless reef/Eventual 40

Have you figured out how fast your levels are dropping? The following is just my $.02, I would start testing daily for a few weeks and chart the levels and see if you can see how fast it's going down before I started.

Yeah I've been on it somewhat but not 100%. I'll check tonight, an tomorrow and then my wc is on Sunday. I'll be gone Saturday but I'll test all next week too. I hadn't checked anything in a while lol. Just checked everything and I was quite surprised how low my numbers were...
Alk was down to 7 from 9
Calcium is about 340 (test kit sucks, ordered a salifert so don't know how accurate that is)
Mag was all the way down to 1200 from 1400. Edit:1300 not 1200.
