Light quality is good, The coverage is not for the entire tank though, can you pull it up by another 6-8" ?
Thanks & Regards..

And after water change also calcium is 520 ? Something is seriously screwed up if not the test results. Natural sea water has 420 ppm calcium, in tanks it is kept max within 450 ppm for faster growth, but 520 is way much and can stress out inverts pretty fast.
Thanks & Regards..

It may so happen that the rocks in use might have some limestone mixed which is leaching excessive calcium !
Thanks & Regards..
