Purple Up? Anyone try it?

So I have some stuff called purple up and I'm wondering if anyone has tried it out?

Forgot to mention it's supposed to increase the growth of coralline algea.

It's snake oil. Just calcium in a bottle. It also leads to big algae blooms. Don't waste your money on it, coralline takes time and stable parameters to grow

Thanks I'm trying to get all this figured out my lfs got me all messed up buying stupid stuff I don't really need. They sold me on some A B formula calcium for my tank not sure if I really need that rather I only have 2 corals that would eat calcium so I was told to stop with that and with feed oyster feest to my enemones. I'm all confused now.

With such a small amount of coral you really don't HAVE to supplement calcium and Alk. Completing your water changes will replenish enough of the elements they need to grow and/or remain healthy. That being said, each tank is unique. If you do add the garbage their selling you just make sure to test accordingly. 😝
