Hello I’m looking at my levels of tank and my Neptune trident this is without dos and without water changes and a ato running. Should I send this unit in or is this the same testing errors everyone else gets Because I just don’t get how calc is constantly changing with the alk but mag stays the same and I do not dos as all. I’m thinking my trident is broken?

How often are you doing wager changes? And how much? Is your ph swinging drastically? Also most tanks don’t consume much mag in general.

Sand, rock, dead coral skeletons can slowly release into the water stream. I wouldn't expect a perfectly straight line. The Calcium pump you noticed could be a single test error, i.e. something was dirty in the test vial / sensor and it cleared itself out with more tests.

Looks good to me. Dont sweat the cal and mag results soo much. Look at trends over time rather than individual test results. Think about it this way, try testing you mag and cal twice a day everyday and recording the results. I bet you dont plot a perfect line either...
