Copper. I don't have any other heavy metal tests. But there is no metal in the tank and no reason to expect contamination. My RO water has 0TDS.

There are probably 20 posts here about lighting and lighting adjustments. I have made several adjustments over 6 months. None have seemed
To work well.

Ok so after 2 water changes today I have the KH up to 10.2d.

I tested the new SW with the new salt mix and it was 12.2d.

Maybe I got a bad bucket of salt? If the KH was off maybe something else like Mg was off too. I don't know. I will see how it goes.

Should I do yet another water change with the new salt tomorrow?

When you got the bucket of salt did you make sure to roll the bag on the floor for like 10 minutes before you opened the bag? You must mix it before use. Sounds like you are using red sea pro mix?

Just to make sure, did you happen to run any Kent Marine carbon on the tank? There was a recall on some batches that caused lots of tank crashes. Just want to rule it out.
