Tank Change Part 2

I moved my 35 gallon tank over to a 50 gallon. Things seemed ok with everything, I used the same water, live rock, filters, etc from my old tank. Although for some reason my calcium level is reading at 900+. I guess it is the mix of new live sand and crushed coral making it so high.

What is the best way to lower this, my corals are doing badly, they are not coming out like they used too. My assumption is holding off on my calcium supplement and adding magnesium should help.

Any ideas?

My suggestion would be lots of smallish water changes. Daily until the results are back in line.

Be very careful adding anything, I would not recommend any additions at this time. Make sure to test first if you do, it may just make your water further out of line. I agree w/ Phyl, do some 15-20 percent water changes daily for a few days and let things settle.
