I’ve been dosing the 3 part solution for a little over 6 months now. In my last ICP test, both Calc (522ppm) and Mag (1446ppm) levels were quite high with my Alk steady at 8.5.

How can I get my Calc and Mag levels back lower when I’m dosing equal parts of the 3 solutions (52ml/day)?

I also use Tropic Marin Pro Reef Salt.

SH: 1.027 (need to bring this down)
Temp: 79

Ok, and then once they level out, do I go back to dosing the same amounts again? That’s the main objective is to be dosing all 3 parts together, at the same amount each day.

Then again, wake up to dose the same way. Sometimes adjustments are required, especially in younger KH systems, more is consumed
