Anything to Be Concerned About?

Just tested my parameters:

PH-8

Nitrite-0
Nitrate-0
Alk-7.27
Phos-0
Mag-1455
Cal-485

Just curious

Since you asked...I would say cal/mag are a little high but should not be an issue at all..
looks just fine other than that..

I agree that those levels are fine. I might let calcium drop down to more like 400-450 ppm, and magnesium should be fine at 1275 ppm or so, but a bit extra magnesium won't hurt, and some people report less precipitation on tank walls.

What do your corals look like? Are they complaining at all? Pale or brown or otherwise?
