    You can dose calcium successfully.
    How much calcium is your tank consuming?

    It seems only to be the pin cushions that are suffering a day with tenticals out then a day bare as a babys bum with a shine like they are wet

    Check Alk levels with pin cushions. You don't have many hard corals so a calcium reactor might be overkill. Rather manually dose or use a doser to dose.
