And, no I do not dose calcium. And I have not checked alkalinity. Thanks all.
Check the alk
level and see where that's at. Typically high Ca
will be the result of a declining alk
, low Mg
or faulty reading on the test kit. In any event, the absolute easiest fix is a few simple water changes over the next week. High Ca
like that can cause quite a few issues with most scleractinians and especially clams. Not to mention an all out snowstorm. I would get it fixed as soon as the water is ready.
If you get a chance, post the test results on you newly made SW
after it's been aerated for at least 12 hrs.
