Calcium levels and carbonate levels DO matter, and are frequently overlooked when there is a problem in a saltwater tank. Calcium and carbonate levels are part of "water params" that are important in salt water. A perfect tank with a calcium level that is too high or too low could turn into a nightmare, with no easy explaination until you look a little deeper into the water params... calcium levels will have a huge effect on fish and how their organs are able to function.
The more information that is provided, the faster we are able to help, but not everyone reads the stickys about "read before posting" which have been put here by the moderators in an attempt to help as quickly as possible, so we need to ask a lot of questions to find and provide accurate answers.
