Am having a dilemma. I inherited my 125 g reef in march this year. Previous owner dosed with a 2 part calcium/alkalinity supplement and recommended I continued. I didn't dose until June cause that is when I bought the kits and the kent supplements. I bought salifert kits cause I heard that cheap calcium kits are worthless. When I originally checked, my calcium was around 600 and alk
was at 7.0. I was surprised that calcium was that high since I did not supplement at all. Just regular water changes with rodi
water and coralife salt. The alk
was a bit low so I started dosing just the one part of the kent tech cb. My current readings are 640 cal and 8.0 alk
. The calcium number seems high and worries me. Any clues what could be going on here? Is a calcium level that high detrimental? It seems like most people fight to keep calcium high enough rather than trying to lower their numbers. Oh, and yes I have checked my tds
on my rodi
water. It was at 6ppm so I don't think that is an issue.
