Yep. That's what I would do. Once the aquarium gets balanced you probably can dose more equally, but your not there yet.

I have old tank syndrome as the corals have cemented my reef together over the years. As a result in 500 gallons I add about 30ml of alk every 24 hours.

No, that along with some kalkwasser and a touch of calcium and I'm good to go.
