These answers in liquid dont help much because different products have different concentrations.

My 20L is stocked pretty heavy with fast growing SPS and is consuming about half a tablespoon of dry bicarb daily and a tad less calcium chloride. For a small tank that's a fair amount.

I'm moderately stocked in my 350 gallon display I think. Small and medium sized coral colonies. I'm going through 200 ml of alk and 200 ml of calcium chloride per day and dosing 48 ml of Magnesium per day.

Magnesium is consistantly at 1500, Calcium just tested at 525, and alk at 8.7. PH running 8.2 to 8.4.

I think my calcium is a little high because I'm also dosing trace elements from Red Sea (A, B, C, and D) Which contains calcium additive as well based on the element stating "trace elements dosed based on calcium consumption"....
