See if an lfs will provide store credit, but do understand you will probably receive less than half of what you originally paid for it. Otherwise, you can either post an add in the classifieds (newspaper or forum) or find a local aquarium club and put an add up.

Calcium/Alk additions are usually recommended for those who wish to keep corals.

Water changes should be performed at least monthly. Many guidelines state 25%/month, but I usually tend to follow 20% - 25% every two weeks.

I agree with James just get a Calcium test kit. My suggestion for having proper calcium is weekly PWC`s. Mine stays at 400-420 all the time with weekly PWC`s. You can look at my gallery to see the type corals I have.
