Water params... Correction needed?

Just curious... I finally bought a calcium and dkh test kit because I saw a spore of coralline turning white. Just did a full work up. Here goes:

Ph: 8.1
SG: 1.026
Ammonia: 0
Nitrite: 0
Nitrate: 0-5

And...

Calcium: 440
dKH: 200ppm (12)

Is this ok? any correction needed (water change)? Not planning to do weekly change until Friday... Sound good?

Thanks in advance!

Everything sounds good. Sometimes it happends. Do you dose strontium, or Kent's essential elements?

Thanks Jesse! I had been dosing Kent's Coralvite (2.5ml with each weekly water change), but will stop until my levels lower a little. I will also pick up a Magnesium and Strontium test kit too...

I do appreciate the response! Happy new year!!

You can get a test kit if you want. I was just suggesting dosing these as well. Good luck. Happy New year.
