I don't have much in the way of sps. Three acros one is great the other so so and the mille doesn't expand polyps much but is still growing. He used to be hairy basicaly. I can't get montipora to thrive in my tank for some reason. I love lps so my tank is dominated by them u know acans and the sort

Acans and other LPS do build massive skeletons that also require a lot of calcium. My point is that you can sustain a system with just water changes.

Yeah I believe that but it seems like I would have to change 30% plus a week at thus rate. I did a 20% yesterday and levels are all good. They begin to drop after three days. The acans I have are the biggest corals I have with maybe 20 plus heads on each. One us about five inches across on whatever its growing on. Looks like a rock but probably all skeleton

Are those swings in alk going to be a problem for the coral and I should try to straighten it out or what?

I didn't see major problems with any sps corals replenishing once a week with water changes.
