My calcium is at 500 and the coralline is taking over my tank. I also have decent lighting too and pretty good water parameters. I really feel it's a combination of all three factors.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

My calcium is not that high around 400 ppm but everything else is in check Im just amazed how a tank that my tank that has been up 3 months is outgrowing the one that has been up 8 months

IAgree with the purple up but you have to get you're phosphates as close to zero as you can to really have that stuff explode on you. I love the stuff and use it religiously.
