Alkalinity spike- HELP!

I run a 20G coral tank with a 10G sump. I have been dosing blindly with reef fusion 1 & 2 and magnesium. Yesterday I ran a alkalinity test with my sailfert kit and found that it is approximately 15-16 dKh. I also tested my calcium to find it at 460. I did a 10G water change to find my alkalinity about the same but my calcium at 520. I have been reading but I'm insure of what to so next. Some people leave it to even itself out naturally, some have other ideas. Please help!!!
Also, my corals seem to be just fine, not a single one has burned from this high of alkalinity... Click image for larger version
