    Also, after you decide on a product for dosing, look at a cal/Alk balance calculator online. The two are used most effectively when balanced. No need dosing more calcium than needed if it can't be used effectively by your tank.

    Ph changes throughout the day. You can test it in the am and it will be lower than in the pm.

    I would recommend testing magnesium as its level effects alk and calcium.

    Right now your levels are within normal ranges and with water changes it should stay stable. As you add corals you may need to dose in future but I would suggest dosing when its needed and only add what you regularly test.
