Difficult to say Mike as most of the elements are dosed depending to the look of the corals however something you might try if the system runs stabile:

CoralSnow
BioMate

XTRa
PotassiumIodineFluoride
B-Balance

A K+ test kit is helpful also, otherwise just wait until you need some additional products to order them later.

Usually if both PO4 and NO3 are stabile low and coals are doing fine growing well.

For the first exchange replace 90% after 4 weeks, all further changing intervals can be lengthened to 6 – 8 weeks depending to the nutrient concentrations.

Hi Mike please check if the K+ level is within the recommended range, you also can add the additional products to your dosing regimen if you do not have algae issues as follows:

XTra – 5 ml 3 x weekly
FlatwormStop – 5 ml 3 x weekly

You can dose them at the same day or on alternate days.

Please post a update in about 2 weeks.

G.Alexander

If you are sure your test result is correct you can dose 1 ml / 25 US gallons every 2 hours. 3 – 4 x daily would be a good start. Please also check if the salt you use has a adequate level. Increasing the K+ level to quick can cause problems with your corals (TN starting from the tips).
