    Hello, I just got a Monti Digitata frag and I'm wondering what is the best Calcium level for SPS. My tank is mostly softie and a few LPS and I keep my calcium at 400. Do i need to raise it up more or 400ppm is good?

    thanks

    Digitata's are Ca sponges but most SPS tanks usually are good @430~450ppm. NSW levels are typically at 420ppm. Bump it up slowly and see what your absorption rates and growth goes from there.

    I honestly wouldn't add anything until you see if there is any extra demand. I'd be reactive in this case.

    You're not doing copper in your main tank are you?
