Thanks Kurt! Now, hopefully, I'm ready to start shopping for some corals!

Depending on your corals and how many you have you may need to supplement Ca, Alk a/o Mg.

You may want to read some of the articles by Randy Holmes-Farley such as Solving Calcium and Alkalinity Problems.

I use a name brand salt (RedSea Coral Pro) and I bump up the Calcium level before adding it to my tank.
