    Calcium reactor are for large amounts of sps are large clams. Since you don't have either you
    don't need a reactor. You do need to dose it up to 400 but it should be stable with what corals you have.
    You come bring it up faster by pouring directly into the tank high flow area and recheck a few hrs later.
    Maybe start out by pouring 2 ounces and see if it affects your level.

    The drop of Ca from 500 to 200 was in 2 weeks. In that 2 week I was still dally dosing Ca solutions. And that was too much work so I start using the reactor and set it at a really low rate.

    It should not be dropping that quick. Something is out of balance in your aquarium.

    Would take some water to a local store and have them check it.
