Hmmmm... I'd say testing your water parameters and seeing where there at. Levels will depend on needs, so as far as a formula I'm not sure there's a right or wrong answer here.
You knob what the levels should be, so we test to make sure they are good, if not we dose and then test to see where we are at.
Example, I haven't dosed anything for almost 6-7 months, then I had a burst of coral growth and now I have to dose 2 part. I use B-ionic 2 part and I've been dosing now 8mL's every night to get my calcium and alkalinity up.
So again I don't know if the "formula" would be the correct word.
Again the only way to know I by testing and keeping an eye on things.
Plus your water changes supply more then you may think, I got away with just that for months. Now my corals demand more since there growing and sucking all the nutrients up.
Hope this makes sense and helps
