Alkalinity

What are you all running your Alkalinity at? I'm running mine at 8.3 right now.

High Alk and CA in the ranges usually is coincides with ultra low or undectable nitrate and phosphate. Whereas nitrate in the 5-10 ppm ranges I would agree with 7.8 to 8.3.
High alk and CA does not correlate to more grow, however some believe combined with a PH of 8.3, some minor increases due to ions available to corals in the water.

Stability is more important than numbers, corals hate change.
