Edit* and slightly higher alk
will increase the calcium intake. I know of some hard core reefers running close to 14dkh while testing heavily but get AMAZING growth
Just because the higher levels are in the water, does not mean that the corals will build any faster, IMO
. They can only process these things at a fixed rate.
I would think that your corals could be suffering from the weekly roller coaster of Alk
too, but not trying to tell you how to run your tank. To each his own.
I'm also in need of a couple dosers!! Tired of the daily chore of manually dosing.
Good luck with your tank Mrc.
