    I would double check your alk because the red sea pro salt has high alk. If I'm correct the alk is around 11-12 dKh depending on where you mix your salinity.

    That's what I use. I get great growth, I still have to dose calcium and alk weekly though. Have you compared some pics from when you first got the corals to now?

    No, but that has been suggested and I am going to do that. Thanks for your input.
