Calcium Levels Not Going Down

Hello,

Why is it that my calcium levels would not be going down? Every test I do they're always at 400-420. Check my profile for what my tank is. My reef base is power sand if that helps?


Thanks.

Most reefers would love to be n your shoes!!! Unless you have alot of very calcium demanding corals it may take awhile to go down. If your coralline is growing i would not worry about it!

Coralline, sps, lps, and snails are the major consumers of ca. most of which you have none, that is why.

Hi,

Sorry it's POWDER sand.

My corals are growing, especially the frogspawn. That has arms "growing" out quite long which I am pleased about.

Is there somewhere which will detail the calcium requirements of different corals?
