Tell me about your lights, how old are they? I lost my pocillipora and almost lost my anemone and my lights were 10 months old.

were you mixing your salt with tap water? If so, that's more than likely theme reason for high alk.

tap water has dissolved minerals in it that will add to your alkalinity. You need to use RO water for your salt mix. That's why it was still at 14 even after you changed the water.

everything is doing fine.. i was talking to builderofdreams.. and from what he was saying, it was the huge shock of the jump that killed them... they will adjust and use up the alk in time.. now its a waiting game.. i have been considering dosing some cal to eat up the alk as well.. any thoughts??

I wouldn't dose anything for a bit, let them do eat up what's there but watch it so the calcium, mag, and all don't get too low. Get it to where you want to keep it and stay there
