I would recommend you stop dosing. Unless you're testing for every single thing in the dosage, and they're low, don't dose. Just upgrade to reef salt if your really worried.

Well, yeah..... ya didn't mention that part.

As stated above.... never dose anything that you're not testing for. If you're getting into SPS, and don't have them already, I'd recommend some good quality test kits (Hanna, Red Sea, Salifert) for Nitrates, Phosphates, Calcium, Alk, & Magnesium.

That is a perfectly fine reef salt. It has everything you need to keep a successful reef tank.

It's the salt I use....
