Has anyone tried the Red Sea Reef Energy Coral nutrition A/B ?
What effects does it have on calcium and magnesium? How can the calcium and mag dip and rise without doing anything? Started dosing Alkalinity by Red Sea. Need to get CO2 to get my calcium reactor running. Who’s used a calcium reactor and how has it affected your levels?

I’ve watched thru my trident my alk rise and dip in small increments and my calcium I’ve seen go up and down and I haven’t touched my calcium reactor or have I done water changes mag has been doing the same thing not an expert but I’m figuring the corals ,fish coraline algae are using a lot during the day and not so much at night and the reactor is just keeping up with what’s been taken out I guess maybe somebody else can chime in

Small rises and dips could possibly be margin of error in the test kits. How much variation are we talking?
I wouldn’t think Reef Energy would affect Ca or Mag.
