    Last I checked I was around 400.
    It will help maintain it, but will not raise it a lot.
    For that I use Kent Marine Liquid Calcium.

    Just wanted to let people know about a product that seems to be working. I bought Kent Marine Coral Accel and Kent Marine PhytoPlex. I have been dosing sparingly alternating days about half the recomended amount and my soft corals have really grown in the month that I have had them. I read a arcticle about a guy that doses with these and others and thats where I heard. Hey I have a thought. I was talking to to guy up at the lfs and he is trying to move all his saltwater additives. They have been sitting on his shelves for 2 years. I told him that they will spoil and asked him if he would sell them for half price. So I can get them for real cheap. I offered to buy all he had at 25% and he is going over the numbers and will let me know. Wonder if everything he has is giid. He has Kalkwasser, Microvert, Test kits, Just about everything kent was selling 2 years ago. I offered him 300 for the works. Figure I could ebay it and keep some for myself. He is more of a feed store like for farms than a fish shop. I got my Coral excell for 4 bucks 8 OZ. PhytoPlex for 7 bucks 16 OZ. cool huh.
    Anyone know about shelf life on chemicals?

    Wasn't aware of a shelf-life. Where'd you hear that? I'd be interested in hearing more about it.

    I hadnt heard that Matt. I was inquiring if there was a shelf life or expire date on additives.
