I tested the water in my tank and here are the results:

Ca= 400
KH= 8
ph= 8.02
nitrate= 0
Ca reactor=
Ca=500
KH=12
How should I adjust the CA reactor?

Wow, that is one tough post to answer. It might be better to determine what Ca and Alk levels you want in your tank. It looks like your numbers are dead on.

The KH coming out of your reactor, what is that in dKH? Usually people get a 19 - 30 dKH reading from the effluent.

Testing daily is the best way to determine if you need to adjust the numbers upwards or downwards. It can take days if not weeks to nail it at keep a nice stable number around the clock.
