You should look into getting reef crystals, it has a high calcium level and alk level, I've never checked red sea though. Another one I've heard a lot of good things about is seachem's salinity.

Red sea coral pro is a good salt. It is a reef crystal.

Although there's really not too much to report in the last week or so ,...everything's looking very very good,...the new 150 gpd RODI add on works perfectly and I'm thrilled with the results,.,its let me make a larger water change which has helped my tank's levels and actually used less water and less time to make up.,the new chiller is such a neat thing to have ( IMO) and its keeping the temp within a degree of where I set it,...all the recently added coals look beautiful and plump,...besides a couple of new corals that I just ordered ( bubble,hammer ,torch ) I did purchase a " new" food grade 55 gal open top plastic drum for mixing and holding my weekly water changes,.,and it's built like a brick you know what!! It' was a little pricey but it looks like you couldn't damage it if you threw it out of a 767
