    The one from the 2 part should be fine
    the main thing is dont make any changes to fast
    even changes intended to improve things can do more harm then good
    if they are made to happen to quickly

    So this morning my parms are unchanged from 2 days ago.
    salinity - 1.025
    ph - 7.8
    calcium - 400
    alk - 6
    mag - 1110

    Hopefully now that I have the mag test results I will be on the way to get this corrected. I had used a calculator before (cant remember which one) and came up with a system volume of 66 gal. I then plugged my numbers into this calculator Reef Chemistry Calculator. It says to add 12oz of kent tech m to my system to raise it from 1110 to 1210. Also 1 oz of esv b ionic part 1 to raise alk from 6 to 7. Sounds like things will work out good. Ill keep you posted and what the results are tomorrow.

    Dose only Ca to bring up that level about 50ppm. That will also drop your Alk to a better level.
