    I am running getting ready to setup a new doser on my JBJ 45 RL AIO aquarium which is housing primarily SPS corals and I was curious to how long I should wait between dosing each specific chemical? I had an issue with raising my Magnesium levels in a past aquarium but my Calcium & Alkalinity where well within range. I would like to spread each dose accordingly over a 24 hour period (example: 20 ml over 4 doses every 8 hours). Any suggestions would be great. Thank you in advance.

    I spread 9 1mL doses over the course of 18 hours. 1 dose every 2 hours. At night, when I believe uptake peaks. Alkalinity is 5 1mL doses over the same 18 hours, magnesium and trace elements are 7 1mL doses also over the 18 hours.
