My tank is now 8 weeks old and ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates are at 0. As of today, alkalinity is 8.3 and PH is 7.8. I added two clown fish two weeks ago and a purple tang, devils hand, and a few snails and hermits a week ago, which are all doing great. My question is: I am using the BRS 2 part dosing for the first time and wondering how many ml I should start out at?

It doesn't work that way.
BRS has a calculator. https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/reef-calculator
You test and find your levels now. Then you use the calculator to figure out how much to add to get the levels where you want.
Then you keep testing to figure out how often you have to do it.

You do not add some random amount every day.

2 part dosing is for keeping alk, mag, and cal up. It buffs ph as well.
You dont have a need for it. Nothing a small wc wont handle.
U can start by getting a salifert alk/dkh test kit and monitor ur alk. It will stay the same until ur coral load increases. Hths.
