    Hi Masa,

    Tested my Ca,Mg and Kh for the past few weeks.
    Ca: 500+ Salifert
    Mg: 1290 Salifert
    Kh: 8.7 Salifert
    Ph: 8.15
    SG: 1.025

    Does this look normal or is Ca too high? I'm dosing Kalk in my top off bucket.

    That does seem a bit high
    What salt are you using and how often are you doing water changed?
    Dosing kalk shouldn't push Ca up that high

    I'm using Blue Treasure sps. I do 50 litres WC once a month, sometimes sooner.
    I just completed my WC last night. Every 7th to 9th of the month.
