dosing 2 part help

I'm using Red Sea A and B reef foundation. I've got my calcium up but the alk is still low. It's 6.6. Should I continue to dose part B until the numbers are where I want them ( around 8 DKH ) My numbers are as follows

Salinity...1.025
Temperature...78F
PH...8.09
Calcium...490
Alk...6.6
Magnesium...1390

dosing 2 part help

You can add them in different amounts if necessary. There is a "see saw" effect. But that is mitigated by good Mg levels, which you have. Higher alk levels will also help even your Ph out. Just do it all very, very slowly.
