No, but they are all similar. Just add small amounts and test. I use this-
BRS 2 Part Calcium & Alkalinity Total Package - Bulk - Bulk Reef Supply

Ok so is a 7.3 a good level? I hear most people keep it between 8-9? So i did a formula and it says i should ad 10.4 grams into my tank of that product to rise it from 6.7 to 7.3. should i do more or? only salifert kit i have is for alk and not cal or mag or ph. so I'm scared going higher would mess up the rest. i have api kit for ph and cal but i have no kits for mag atm. Should i invest in salifert for them or the henna checkers?

Whatever you like, but The most important one is the alk test IMO. Yes, 7.3 is fine as long as you can keep it there.
Just add the alkalinity solution slowly.

Also do zoas require higher light? I'm reading online and it says placement middle to top aswell as moderate lighting. so should i make my leds brighter? they are at 80% blue and white at the moment

Some do and some don't , but generally, they are found in shallow water which means they can do well in high lighting. You have Tao panels, correct? If so, that's plenty of light. I have mostly acropora and they are doing well under less than that at the moment.

Ok so i dissolved 10 grams of powder into 2 liters of ro water and set up my doser to pump out 285.71 mL/day spreadout to 24 times a day. So in 7 days it should use up 2 liters. So just keep an eye on it now or what?

Yes, test regularly and keep a record of any changes.
