No. Maybe if the SPS

no. Look at my gallery. My tanks uses approx .9 meg/l Alk
and 20 ppm Ca
everyday. You have a little more water volume to draw from, but you still have a good amount of SPS
mass to feed, not to mention that huge clam.
are demanding in many ways, not just lighting and flow. They are very taxing on water chemistry. They take a lot out of the water quickly relative to softies and LPS
. Keep in mind Alk
fluctuations will not only kill the color of SPS
, but eventually the coral itself. All reasons that add to them being "difficult" to keep.
Find the daily Ca
use ASAP, get the numbers inline/correct, and dose accordingly to maintain them. HTH
