Hi, i made a thread 2 days ago or so about my first coral. These are my water parameters:
ph 8.2/3
ammonia 0
nitrite 0
nitrate 0
calcium ~400 need to test again to make sure but its around there
dkh ~10/11
SG 1.024 according to my cheapo hydrometer

My question is i got this c-balance part a and part b supplements, i am still kinda confused on how to add to them to maintain my parameters. Is it add equal doses of each part, or different amounts depending on what is needed?? I want my little finger leather to flourish and spread

You need to test your alk/calcium and then use this calculator to tell you how much of each to add

Thats what i was looking for, but how accurate are those??? Also my parameters are looking good right?? calcium should be bumped up 20ppm or so right

400ppm is fine. Go ahead and try to adjust it up 20ppm if you want to practice dosing, but that's a tiny margin and nothing to be concerned about - especially since you're not running a tank stuffed with SPS.
