With a reading that low, I would suspect your test kit was bad, or you messed up the test, some can be pretty complicated, I mess up on a regular basis. At any rate, verify that reading before adding a lot of calcium

I agree. I would test again. I mess up with calcium all the time cause you have to keep dropping and counting till it changes from pink to purple and the use the chart. I don't see how your levels are that low especially using reef crystals

This is a good time to point out that Salifert test kits are much better, more expensive and complicated? IMO yes... But worth it. I have a Salifert kit for cal,mag and alk. I use API for the rest.

That 6 pack with free shipping is actually 25 percent off right now. Does everyone usually do the free shipping or overnight it for a little more

If i didn't just by a new range finder from bass pro I would order some too. If they still have the sale on Wednesday I will. Been spending all my extra cash on the tank but hunting season is almost here. Gotta spread it out a little. Plus it probably won't hurt to let me tank go a couple weeks without adding anything.
