Whats the best way to dose calcium and alkalinity at the right levels?

Just wondering whats the best way to dose calcium and alkalinity and keep them right levels? I only have some zoanthids in my 72 gal.

Welcome to AA!

Chances are with only zoas, no dosing is necessary. If you get alot of calcium depleting corals, such as SPS corals, you should test your calcium and alk levels every other day for a few weeks. See how much each is dropping and then dose every day to make up for what the corals consumed.
