Have done a water change yet forgot I need to let the water in one jug airate so I will do it tomorrow. That works better anyway then I will do another on Sunday anyway I did run the tests and PH is high and alk is lower and i see the likes of cyano starting. What do I need to do to get this straightend out? Just water changes?

Calcium 700
Phosphate 0
Alk 2.9
Nitrates 2ppm
ph 8.4-8.6

That link I posted gives you pretty good step-by-step info on how to solve cal/alk issues. You are in "Zone 4". And yes... I'd just take care of it with water changes AND stopping the use of any coralline "boosters". Time after time, all they seem to do is mess up people's water parameters.
