Wish I wouldn't have went with a deep sand bed there is so much flow in the tank that that one high spot is about 10"

Going to do a small change to my plumbing to make my water changes easier. Going to add on to my return and add a ball valve at the bottom. What this will do is allow me to turn off the supply to the return pump and turn on my extention to be able to drain water with out a syphon hose. I will then be able to attach the same hose to my pump and add new water back the same way it came out. I will add photos as I do it on my next water change. Sump will be off line for a day while the cement drys.

If you are not dosing anything, that calcium will not hurt anything, except for faster scaling onto pumps, etc. I would not do anything (nor am I aware of a specific lowering technique to be used).

However, if you are dosing, there are 3 ways to lower it;

1. Add LESS calcium (easiest and cheapest method).
2. Add LESS magnesium. That will allow more calcium and carbonate to form and precipitate, lowering BOTH calcium and Alk.
3. Add MORE carbonate/bicarbonate or Alk additive. That will again allow for more precipitate, and lower BOTH Calcium and magnesium levels.

The third option is possible if you are not currently dosing and are considering starting. Your Alk is a wee bit low, and could use some, but if your corals are growing nicely, I probably wouldn't start dosing. If it ain't broke...

I asked Mr X for his opinion on them. He said they will work but his concern would be with the timer going out I would have a useless light. Against his advice I bought them. Now last week the timer started flickerining and then the blues went out. After unplugging and plugging back in the timer display is fine but guess what? The blues are not going back on. One of the two fixtures is okay but one side of my tank only has whites on. My question now is will I (my corals) be okay without blues for a while while I wait to buy another light?
