I used this calculator on your water volume (roughly 360 litres)

Reef Chemistry Calculator

and from it 36ml will raise your calcium by 10ppm so 20 mls will only raise it by about 6ppm. Your test kit can probaly not distinguish this amount on the scale.

You will need to add about 360ml of this product to raise your calcium levels to 400ppm.

I would suggest adding 50ml/day until you reach this level
