Smile How Can I get these Lower?

I just did a water parameter check and realized everything was pretty High well just my Cal and Alk. I use Oceanic Salt mix

Calcium 540PPM
Alk 14dkh
Phos 0.5 PPM
Ammonia 0.0 PPM
Nitrate 0.0PPM
Nitrite 0.0PPM

Mag No test kit for it yet...

But just trying to stabilize my Calcium Alk and Phos.

Any help would be appreciated.

540 is no killer on the calcium. It`s a little high. I usually have high calcium and low alk on my SW made with Oceanic.
