Depending on the size of tank I would recommend a two-part system to balance Ca and Alk. Otherwise, Kent's Turbo Calcium will help beneficial corralines grow. Just make sure you test your system.

Test to see where you are at now. Choose ca/alk system. Test to make sure you are not over/under dosing.

Personally I would just do weekly pwc, that alone should keep your calcium and alk at decent levels.

What type salt are you using? I have found IME that Oceanic keeps my calcium at about 400-420 just by doing weekly PWC`s. Here is a link as to what your testing should read

With the issues you have been having in your tanks lately, I would not start using additives at all.
