    Strange that your parameters mixed up so low with Reef Crystals?

    I didnt do a water change before starting the dose routine, maybe I should have....
    It does show me why the corals look great a week after water changes and then start to fizzle out the next week.

    Hey Ryan,
    I have upgraded a year ago. I know have a 240 DT and using the 100 as a sump = 320 - rock. I am using 300 Gal on the calculators.
    After 2 days of Auto dosing I am at
    Mag - 1280
    Alk - 9
    Cal - 420
