    So I figured after a little over 4 years without doing water changes I would send in a test. I knew when I sent in sample calcium was high and made adjustment on calcium reactor. Other than adding a little manganese anything standout?

    Does it matter your dkh when sending test to Triton. Somewhere I heard it must be at 8.0

    No, it makes no difference at all. 8 dKH is a specified goal of the "Triton Method" of maintaining a tank, and is not related to testing by ICP. :)
