I recently acquired a Reef Foundation Pro Test Kit that tests for Ca, KH, & MG. I am wondering where my levels should be. I have a biocube 29 with fish and zoas... I did my first test yesterday and not sure what to make of the numbers. I understand the booklet recommends certain numbers but I also understand that people like to have their take at different numbers for certain reasons. Any feedback would be appreciated as this is my first time using this kit.
Titrant used (ml) = 0.64
meq/L = 3.2 dkH = 9.0
Titrant used (ml) = 9.0
Calcium Level (ppm) = 450
Titrant used (ml) = 0.70
Magnesium Level (ppm) = 1400
Also, some of my levels may or may not be slightly high since today is the day I do my water change and these tests were performed yesterday.
My question is in two parts:
1) where should I want my numbers to be
2) how do I get them there if they are too high/low?
