I don't know why my calcium would be too high. I don't dose as of yet. But I'm sure it'll get brought down! I plan on picking up some more friends this week
Don't worry about the calcium. It's fine IMO. You won't have to dose calcium until you have more coral.

Calciums fine, you won't have to dose ever IMO. Keep up with your PWC's and your corals will have everything they need.

A great test kit that is easier to use than the salifert test are the red sea test kits. I use them myself. The reef foundations kit has alk, calc, and magnesium. I use that one the algae control one (nitrate & phosphate) and the individual iodine test kit since I monitor and dose it for my various shrimp

No prob. It took me a while to figure them out too lol. I believe there's a description of them on the website somewhere. Here's a few that might help you get by until you find it.

LR-live rock
LS-live sand
CUC-clean up crew
CC-crushed coral
BB-beneficial bacteria
JMO-just my opinion
DT-display tank
QT-quarentine tank
DSB-deep sand bed
SSB-shallow sand bed

That might actually be all of them lol
