There any reason you are dosing your tank? I'm hoping that you are testing the things you are dosing as dosing blindly can put parameters way out of whack and cause tank crashes.

I dose kalk through my ATO for Ca and Alk. As far as Mg, I dose 5ml of Brightwell Aquatics Magnesion twice a day for a total of 10ml per day.

I use DowFlake Ice Melt (calcium chloride) for calcium and MagFlake Ice Melt (magnesium chloride) for my mag supplement. I also use Arm & Hammer baking soda for my alk supplement.
