Like seaham says, for coralline you really shouldn't need to dose alk and calcium. Regular water changes should keep those levels reasonable for coralline growth.

Nope that is better then tap water.. Over time you may want to save up for a ro/di unit, you will save $$ in the long run. And the RO part is great to drink.
