For me, both high (>10) and low alk (<7) can be problematic. Low alk especially.

I also have noticed times when it seemed dosing "balanced" amounts of alk and ca wasn't yielding reasonable numbers. I used to have this 24" back to front of tank Idaho Grape Monti cap. that was a ginormous calcium sponge.

And adjusting dosing to accommodate ever changing populations and growth of stony corals can provide additional challenge.

The human desires for instant gratification and immediate problem resolution cannot be satisfied with this hobby.
