I'm just a little skeptical because they're known to topple rocks.

Mine are a little precarious. If I get some, I'll go for the smaller ones

That's ridiculous. You better add food for them, because you definitely don't have enough food for 10 turbo snails in your 55.

Yes you should have an alk test. Stable dkh is vital IMO. Plus low dkh will mean green hair algae. Get the dkh up and nutrients out and poof, it will go away without the aid of creatures.

Isn't testing alk with out calcium useless. I've heard you need the right balance between them

I'm not quite sure I understand what you are asking. Alk, cal and mag are related, but it's mag that makes cal available. Therefore when everybody bangs on about "I can't get my cal up" mag is usually the culprit. However that's a whole different matter. With such a large acceptable range (8-12 maybe even 13) I don't accept that alk without cal is useless at all. Mind you you should really have all 3 kits if you are keeping a reef anyway.
