-About 15-20 lbs of live rock
-60 lbs (3") of sand.
-2x65w power compact lights
-2x18w power compact in the refug.
-bak pak 2R
-3 LARGE feather dusters all differebt colors
-orange spotted goby
-fire fish
-12 or so hermits
-50-60 nassairus snails
-about 12 turno snails
-emrald crab

First of all, Why are you dosing? Do you have a problemwith low calcium?

How big is your tank?
How long has it been set up?
Has your tank completed the Nitrogen cycle yet?
What are your water parameters (pH, Ca, Alk, Mg, etc.)
