Dosing will vary per your aquariums demand for trace elements. For an average reef tank, the starting dose will be around 50 mL for every 100 liters (27 gal) of aquarium water daily. Test your calcium, alkalinity, and magnesium levels for proper stability and adjust accordingly.
50mL dissolved in 27 US gal will raise Ca by 9 mg.
