Red sea coeal colors dosing question

My potassium levels are always low. It is one I don't have a test for but I send samples to a lab in Colorado accasionally just to check myself. Currently it is 85.8 mg/l. The dosing chart on the bottle doesn't make much since. It says 1 ml will raise 25 gall 1.75 ppm k. I have a 110 reef with a thirty gall sump. I just call it 110 gall. That means 1 ml will raise my k level only .4. If this is correct then I would need the whole bottle and I know better!!

I would just do weekly wc with a good salt mix. I dose cal and alk only my cal has mag and trace elements in it. Maybe look into something like that. If your tank is thriving I wouldn't add more stuff, don't chase numbers if tank is doing well.
