will adding normal carbon ripp out the trace elements from the water and ruin all that I have done. also is there another way of getting calcium into the water other then additives because I bought synthetic salt and the calcium level is soo low that adding the additives to the water would cost a ton. should I just dump the water and go get a reef safe salt . please help.

I don't think running carbon really affects to much I usually have some in my filter. But if you want you could do like some and just run it a few days a month just to polish the water up if your more comfortable with that. Since you have a synthetic salt that would be find also.

I agree with karlas, I've been using carbon since day one with no ill effects.
