hey all Happy Halloween!!
Curious to know what y'all thoughts are on my parameters. 8 days ago I did a 20% wc as i normally do every 2 weeks. Just started dosing All For Reef at 4ml daily prior to wc. I noticed my alk before wc was 8.3 and after wc it was 9.3 (wow). I use reef crystals and tested the RC before adding to tank and Alk was 12.5 so im wasn surprised about the 1dkh increase. Livestock(softies/LPS) had not adverse affects after wc which was a good thing.
parameters after wc 10/23:
PH - 7.79
Alk - 9.3
Ca - 480
Mag - 1380
NO3 - 0
Phos - 0.15
salinity - 1.026

dosing only AFR 4ml/day
parameters today:
PH - 7.7
Alk - 8.2
Ca - 440
Mag - 1350
NO3 - 0
Phos - .15
salinity - 1.026

so being that my alk dropped 1dkh in week with Ca and Mag slightly dropping as well, do i dose 5ml/day with AFR?
or should i do weekly 10% wc to maintain parameters instead of 20% twice a week?

I appreciate any input.. thanks in advance and be safe tonight

Thanks for the link.
The calculator doesn't have All for Reef as one of the products available. Is there anything similar to All for Reef?
