Calcium levels

I did my first calcium test did it three times to be sure. the brand of test I did was a Seatest by Aquarium Systems. All three times my levels came out to 570mg/1 I've been told that between 400 to 450 is where I want to be. Am I in big trouble what should I do? Any input you guys have would be great thanks.

What is your alk? I'd look for a precipitation event, if your CA is actually that high. The last Fastest I tested with a reference was nowhere near accurate. I would recommend a salifert CA test or a seachem CA test and try again.
