While you're cycling you're going to see the numbers jump all over the place. Mine did the same thing while I was cycling. I was told not even to bother testing until the tank had matured some since there would be so much flux. I was convinced (in spite of the great advice) that my coraline was sucking it all in. In retrospect it was just flux!
is "low" out of the box (for if you want corals in there) and your dKH
is a little on the high side, but your pH is good. I'd be inclined not to worry about it for a while. If your cycle's done go ahead and add that fish you have in QT
(or put one in QT
) Once your concerned with keeping corals, jumping your Ca
up will have the effect of slightly lowering your dKH
