If your wanting sps growth, I'd start dosing. Ive started and it's like all my corals started growing a ton now. The bonsai which I added about a month ago is almost completely purple and green (it was a brown out) and is encrusting the rock very fast. Same with my Monti, stylo, and purple plasma acro.

Lol, not really, I'm starting to become obsessed though.. Calcium magnesium and alkalinity are what you need to worry about, you shouldn't be alk and calc are the main two, mag keeps them from bonding as much in the water column. Two parts are super easy to use if you want to go that route. If you want something cheaper but more math, do calcium carbonate and baking soda, just make sure whatever you dose, you dose it regularly, you don't want spikes, just smooth levels.

Hmmmm, I was under the impression dosing wouldn't help unless your coral is depleting the elements. If one starts dosing does it actually promote growth if you already have good alk and calcium levels?
