Water parameters

Is this ok or is everything to high ? My LFS told me to bring up the salinity to 1.030 so I did and they also told me to feed the tank fuel for reefs every other day for coral growth so that's what I did for about a week and now everything is really high. Please some feedback

All I have in the tank is small frags about 20 of them. Mix of soft, SPS, LPS, and mushrooms

Please don't listen to that store anymore. To put it kindly they're dumb. Your salinity should be between 1.024-1.026. That fuel stuff is a waste of your money. No need to add it

Do a water change with the salinity of the water change around 1.026. Should get all params back in check.

You shouldn't have any ammonia. The tank is cycled right? The calcium is a bit high. Alk is fine and mag and salinity are a bit high. You can probably wait until Friday just stop dosing the stuff
