Do I need to start Dosing?

Alrighty guys so I'm accumulating more and more coral in my tank including a few hard corals now..all my regular tests came up perfect...my calcium was he lowest a its been so far at around 400ppm. And my kh was only at 7dkh ..what's acceptable for a reef tank?

Yep that's what mine is at and I have plenty of sps growing fine with no dosing. No need IMO.

your test sound good. keep an eye on everything and I would test about every two weeks. i would not let the cal drop lower than 400. Keep up the good work.
