Salifert calcium and alk readings - is something wrong?

Sunday is test day and here are my readings:

dkh 10.6
meq/L 3.77

these seem acceptable


However, my calcium was off the chart. The kit stops at 500 ppm.
I am estimating a calcium level of around 550.

Is this possible or is there something wrong with my kit.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers!

Are you dosing calcium? If so you`ll need to stop and just PWC`s to maintain calcium.
