I have 2 tunze 6045 and 6055 wave makers with 2 sun sun 15000 litres an hour wave makers also. Then I have a v2 1000 skimmer. I have 36w jbl uv and I have ozone also.
Then 2 ai hydra fixtures over my tank. I mainly have a few torch and frogspawn corals and trumpets. They all do perfect and most of my zoas do well just a certain few have died and so have my xenia and my star polyps.

In that case, you would be good purchasing a Phosphate, Calcium, Mag, yes kits too.

I have calcium which is at 380.
And potassium I also have which is spot on. And my magnesium has never dropped in my tank ever. Just alk.

Water nutirent high low

How do you know mag is constant if you have no test for it?What's your magnesium at? If it is to low then you will have a hard time keeping alkalinity and calcium up.

I get phos and mag tested in my local fish shop. And my mag is always at 1250-1300 never below. Don't know why. And only recently my calcium had dropped to 380. I have never seen that drop ever. And potassium never changes ever.

I just came across the same kind of issue been pulling my hair out all morning trying to figure out why so I can correctly fix it before it effects my corals
but mine came after a water change using a different brand salt
all my numbers are spot on except alk and ph
so your not alone
