    update. tank is clearing of algae, cayno is almost gone.

    Corals grows okay.

    I have a weird reading on the test kits.

    all is fine
    salinity is a bit low at 1.021
    ca is under 200!

    weird thing is I dose kalk in my top up and i have dosed a full bottle of calcium now in one month.

    but it always reads under 200

    I have used 2 different calcium test kits.

    Ph is 8.3
    alk is 11.4
    no3 is 0
    po4 is 0.04
    mag is 1380
