    Okay guys I'm really trying to figure out dosing.... I'm testing everyday and my water is Cal 440 Mag 1350 (little high) Alk 8dkh... Now my question is how to figure out how much to dose... Example, Cal falls to 420 and I want to get it back to 450, how do I figure out the dose? Or Mag... I guess in my tank I just dose a mil at a time and keep testing over a few days?

    Hi there
    The stats that you have at the moment I would say are pretty good I wouldn't bother trying to adjust.
    I can see you're using a iPhone there is an app you can download called reefDoser which will be a big help to you.

    Thank you! And no I don't want to do anything at the moment but I would like to know how to go about figuring out how to dose Cal let's say 10ppm... See were I'm going with it. So let's say it's at 430 and I want 440 is it just trial and error to get it back to 440? Thanks for your help

    As I have mentioned before, I don't think that dosing all these additives will make your coral grow faster, look better. There is a greater chance or error when doing so. Keep the big three in check and your tank will be pristine.
