I have automated dosing using the KH Director and Triton. A couple months ago, I switched over to AFR. I'm still not quite there for automation due to delayed Alk response of AFR.

i just have mine going at split doses through out a 24 hour period. The dose splits it up and I let it go.

Established tank, but recently switched from Tropic Marin Balling Method to All for Reef. Change was made about a month ago, and at the time my calcium was around 460ppm.

Since dosing the A4R (36ml/day), my calcium just came back from ICP at 547ppm! Mag is at 1417ppm. Alkalinity is stable at 8.4-8.6 every day.

Tank is 45g total water volume

What can I do to get both down back to where they need to be?

I am also using TM Pro Reef salt, could this be a culprit of the high amounts?

Salinity 1.025
pH 8.3-8.4
Phosphate .03
Nitrate 5ppm

I use AllForReef, but due to my colonies still being small, I only dose a third of what’s recommended and everything has been pretty stable.
