The only reason you would dose an Alk
product is to replace the amount consumed by the system for example I have to dose 70ml of ALK
a day to keep mine stable so just buying an ALK
liquid and plonking it in will not work long term it will end in tears as you have to work out the weekly consumption then divide that by 7 which will give you a daily dose that's needed and the amount you have to dose will depend on the strength of the liquid you are adding it will normally quote a DKH
raise per X ml over X litres not forgetting that dosing will need tweeking depending on growth ect as well as consumption can change.
Most systems especially the OP being FOWLR
will have nothing consuming ALK
so why dose it ? Basic waterchanges will keep his system where it's needed providing he is using a good quality water to mix his salt with without whacking chemicals in and ones that will push ALK
up when his alk
To the OP what salt are you using ?
