What do you consider good? How often do you check your alkalinity? How do you keep it stable? What lighting was it under in the tank you got it from?

Well, the first thing I would suspect would be alkalinity fluctuations. How often are you adding reef buffer? How much coral do you have in the tank? What test kits are you using?
