You misunderstood something. Randy would never recommend alk
that high, however he does point out certain corals, such as porites, grow faster at a higher alk
level than normal, with normal being natural seawater which is 7dKH. The highest I've ever seen him recommend is 11dKH.
If you feel daring and aren't worried about precipitation in your tank or on your equipment, go for it. Would I?...absolutely not......but that's just me.
