How do you dose a tank and why should you do it?

Shouldn't dose anything you are not testing for. You need to know your parameters so you can adjust your dosing amounts to your needs. Dosing is to put trace elements and chemicals that are being depleted by the corals in their daily uptake.

I dose Calcium via a Ca reactor and Kalk to try and keep my alk up.
