Send a message via MSN to mr_X
Acropora are quite sensitive, but I still don't know the answer to whether they are more or less sensitive than anemones.

Personally, I've killed a handful of acro frags...not a single anemone lost.

Your corals are taking up alk and calcium slowly. You have a pretty low load of sps corals. Dropping 1 dKh over 12 days can easily be replaced with a wc weekly.

In general you start dosing when your wc's can't keep up with your weekly consumption.
