Calcium Formula and Adjusting Water Conditions

Hello there! I have just purchased some Kent Calcium, Iodine, and Strontium additives for my aquarium. Here are my current levels. I am curious what formulas you would use to see what your calcium levels with KH levels, etc. Also, what would I try to adjust my levels to?

46 gallon FOWLR
60 Pounds Lalo Live Rock
1 Coral Beauty Angel
2 Peppermint Shrimp
Assorted Crabs and Snails

Calcium: 340 - 360 mg/L
KH - 140 mg/L

Thanks in advance!!!

38 Gallon (Freshwater): 1 Green Swordtail, 3 Yo-Yo Loaches, 1 Clown Pleco, 1 Blue Gourami, 4 Otocinclus, 7 Cherry Barbs.

46 Gallon (Saltwater): 60 pounds Lalo Live Rock, 60 pounds aragonite sand, 1 Coral Beauty Angelfish, 1 Peppermint Shrimp, 1 Mushroom Coral, 1 Emerald Crab, various snails and hermit crabs.

10 Gallon (Saltwater quarantine):

I just do PWC to get my Calcium to 420. I do them weekly. How often are you doing them and what type Salt.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
