Is it the "norm" for extra additions of suppliment to boost calcium levels when using a calcium reactor and Kalkwasser?

I checked my Calcium today and it was 380ppm. About two weeks ago it was 440ppm. I found I have to add about one dose of Seachem's Reef Advantage Calcium every two weeks.

I haven't checked my Alkalinity yet on this tank, it has been set up for about 2 months now.

Yes, I add calcium supplements, probably more because I keep Sps and Clams, However, I only run kalkwasser probably one week a month.

I checked my ALK last night and it was 3.14 Meq/L or 8.8 Carbonate Hardness. I think that is a good number. I still have to adjust my Calcium reactor to get what's being used and replaced about even.
