    I was not to worried about the calcium being that high. It didnt all happen at once. I am fine letting it slowly fall naturally. I hawk all over alk tho. It stays in the 9s. My mag dipped down to 1100 because I had to order more magnesium chloride. I raised it back up to 1300ish over a few days. I would pretty much write off the green slimer tho. The purple one maintained all of its blue color, and lost all the purple. It looks ice blue. I am thinking I should call it the LE game of thrones white walker acro and put the thing on ebay with a starting bid of 600$. lol

    I also meant to add that my photo period is from about 4:30 to 11:30. I put the optics back on as I mentioned and it is now on top of the wooden frame I made for the canopy. I will try to take readings with the par meter tomorrow.

    I thought I mentioned phosphates are zero. The kit has never changed color. I was referring to the alk and calcium kits. I forget which one. My bad if I misworded it.

    I think I mentioned I have never tested nitrates. I should not have any. Almost no bio load for a year
