    You said that? I must have missed it too. Would be a good thing to get actual values for your alk/mag/ca as has been mentioned as well.

    We have nitrate and kh kits and both came out where it's supposed to be, we just let them test it as well and got the same results.

    But yeah, the fish are doing fine. Swimming healthy all over. Can almost feed them from your hand.

    Salt mix we use is Salinity by Aquavitro, and we use the house water with a SpectraPure filter system on it.

    trate,
    trite
    amm
    temp
    kh

    Did you add or remove any powerheads, rock, coral anything lately?

    After looking at the salt mix reviews it appears to mix at a low ALK.

    You have several corals now so you may have to supplement with a buffer secondary to increased utilization by the corals.

    This is the first direction I would go to trouble shoot your problem.

    Ok. Well there are the results we have so far. My wife works in a lab so she will run a cal and mag test at work tomorrow, but so far everything is coming up completely normal. :/
