I dont think much would happen but if it got really high I`ve heard that it can reach a precipitation point. What makes you ask?

Percipitation of the calcium aka 'snowstorm' in the tank is possible with Ca levels that are 'too high'. Running high Ca lends to faster depletion of Alk and a closer eye should be kept on Mg levels. Running elevated levels of Ca can also damage your pumps and acrylic devices like protein skimmers. I can attest from personal experience, getting the Ca deposites off of your equipment is a long vapid process. However, what is 'too high' is a subjective discussion and depends on each reef keepers setup and stock.

Happy Reefing
