What's your magnesium? If that is low then you will not be able to maintain alkalinity at a proper level.

I just encountered a similar prob this morning after testing
I discovered my ph dropped drastically overnight going from 8.4 to 7.4
my alk also seemed to drop went from 10 to 6
the only thing I did was a 10% water change yesterday
oh I ran out of my brand salt and used reef crystals instead till I get another box that I already ordered I always use the kent marine otherwise
I don't see why a different salt would change everything that much
I'm just baffled
I don't usually dose but you think maybe I should till my numbers go back up
Fish are like lifesavers
They come in different colors

IME I have seen softies, not all, but a few types fail when phosphates are reduced to levels that SPS and LPS thrive at.
