Well after seeing a thread on nano-reef about that salt it seems it will always mix low. I'd switch to a reef grade salt like reef crystals, kent, Red Sea, etc. either that or learn to add enough calcium/alk/mag to your new salt water

Stony corals do yes, but you need a lot of them to deplete levels to where dosing is necessary you only have 2. I agree with every one else on it most likely being your salt mix
