My DkH at 8. Ca 450 Mg 1395. I water change out 7 liters a day.
How much component 1,2,3 should I add.
My tank including sump is 422liters.

Hello,
This would be based on your alk consumption rate over a 24 hour period. You will need to determine the how much your are taking in and match with little to no alk swing day to day. Once you get all parameters set, the dosage for all 3 should be the same as the alk uptake.

My alk has gone up since I am doing daily 2gallon water changes on 111 g tank. So do I still have to dose?

I would suspend dosing until your values fall in line, then begin dosing based on consumption over a 24 hour period, as it relates to alk.
