    high calcium?

    Hi...just wondering, according to my Hagen test kit, I have a reading of 460mg/L for calcium.
    Is this too high?

    It's only been 5 weeks and I've never put any additives in the tank. Without getting another test kit, is it possible that the salt (IO) I use is giving me this much calcium? water is RO water.
    thanks.
