Dosing Pump Question

I just bought myself a dosing pump with three pumps to work with. I'm going to be dosing ca, mg, and alk to my reef tank.

Question is how much should I dose and is that a good combo for the pump.

Any help is appreciated!

That's an answer you'll have to find yourself. First test your water and see what levels your at. Then use a dosing calculator to figure how much over how long you need to dose to get to the desired target numbers. After that test morning and night for the next couple days which will give you your daily usage at those levels. Once you know your daily usage then you can dose accordingly.
