I would stop dosing anything. Just use a reef grade salt mix and do 10% weekly changes.

Is that enough to replace calcium/carbonate hardness/magnesium back to acceptable ranges?

I had been doing 25% weekly water changes every week up until lately i've been doing it once every two weeks. I tested about 3 days ago and my calcium was 400. Very acceptable but I dosed it back to 420 because I had never seen it that low, lol.

Water changes with a good reef salt is all you need.
