PH 8.2
KH 9.3
Cal 350

I might be wrong, but the calcium level doesn't make sense with the alk reading and mag reading. These 3 parameters go hand in hand. I usually have a reading of 425-440 with alk at 8-9 and mag around 1450-1500. What test are you using?

equipment: Eshopps psk-200 skimmer, Mag 12 pump, 30gal sump, 2x 300w Finnex heaters, glass-holes 1500gph overflow kit with 3/4" return kits, 72" 8x36w t-5 AquaticLife light, 66lbs of LR, 150lbs of tropic eden reeflakes, 2 Koralia Evo 1400, JBJ ATO, BRS dual GFO/carbon reactors, Hydor smartwave

Current Tank Info: 125gallon

As I am useing crappy salt... Almost out of this batch of salt and going to start useing a higher end maybe Kent salt for water... But when I have taken my water the the LFS my Cal has allways tests low...

Anything ever happen with this? I fed my frogspawn today and after eating one of the mouths look like this. Is the frogspawn okay ? My other frogspawn is half way through splitting and still looks normal.
