Not sure how I got here. How many ppm can I raise calcium in a day my alk is 9.5 and my magnesium is 1410. My calcium is abnormally low. It's usually at 450-480, and this morning 210!!!!

Not. LFS confirmed
What test kit is LFS using. If API, May BE false reading.
Additionally, remember saltwater 101. . . . NOTHING IS FAST WHEN IN REEFING.
Fast = Disaster.
Is there another LFS you could visit for a CA test to see what they come up with? It would be beneficial and then allow you to identify the most trusted source

LFS confirms my Salifert result. Same numbers. And yes about too fast equals disaster. That's why I'm asking for a consensus
No more than 50 ppm per day, but I agree, something isn't adding up. I don't even know if its possible to have a reading that low. What's your ALK at? K, just saw, your Alk is at 9.5 DKH.
