Ok. That is the ratio that I am using on the mixture. When I am on the reef calculator on brs they say it will take 368 ml to bring it up to 420.

Mag is fine at 1300 then. My guess is your not dosing enough for your system or your test kit is flawed which is very easy with API kits. Other than that, recheck your math, dose, test, and retest.

Yes, that is correct. (Not sure what I entered to get the # I got) If your dosing 110ml a day it will raise your calcium by 12ppm. Being you use an API test kit and they only measure in increments of 20ppm, you more than likely won't see the rise.
As you are aware, the API test kits are very cheap...and for a reason. They are not very accurate. Look into picking up either a Salifert or Elos test kit. They cost considerably more than an API but they are much more accurate. You may have to purchase it online since not alot of local pet shops carry them.
