    dKH: 22.4
    Ca: 300
    Mg: 290
    pH: 8.4

    Dude, the numbers are really off. Are your corals doing OK?

    I like to see my numbers at
    dKH: 10-12
    Ca: 450
    Mg: 1400
    pH: 8.2-8.4

    The reason your Ca isn't staying up is that your other numbers are sooooo off. I will have to wait for others to chime in. I have no idea what to do with this. I will keep an eye on the thread, as I am intensely curious.
