Dosing questions

Hey guys - 30 gallon tank is coming along nicely, tested alk today and it came in low, I dosed reef builder and plan on dosing again later this week. My questions:
1. When is the best time to dose manually
2. Where is the best place to dose, I have a hob skimmer and filter. I've just been adding to my top off ro di water and pouring it in the tank. My clown fish always come and check it out and swim right in it, it makes me nervous.

He will be fine. In a sumpless system with out a doser, you're top off water is probably the best place.
