There are two different readings for ALK. I believe you tested one way and are seeing the expected readings for the other way.

2nd to last paragraph
Alkalinity for Marine Systems

Not a must have, but very nice IMO. You can hide your heater there for one. Grow macro algaes, and just have more water volume in your system which can be more forgiving if things go wrong sometime.
