I have a 42 gallon tank with 45 lbs of LR
I had a huge brown algae bloom a few days back, and have done 3, 5-gallon water changes in the past three days (one per day)
I have 4 corals - 1 elegance coral, 1 meat coral, 1 hammer and 1 flower pot.
All my numbers are in the green.
Amonia = 0
Nitrites = 0
Nitrates = 10
pH = 8.2
Temp = 78
Phosphates = .2
However, here is my concern . . .
Calcium = 500 ppm
= 230 ppm
Is this too high? I have a buffering product, but it does not say that it is phosphate free.
I have a phosphate and silicate magnet in place, but don't want to tax it.
What can I do to get my calcium and KH
into more reasonable ranges?
