    No need. Dosage is dependant on your levels and following instructions according to the product you are using.

    Don't know how to does that product, but magnesium isn't skimmed from your system.

    Dosing should be to reach the ideal level and thereafter dosing should be to maintain it at that level, i.e. replace what is sucked out by corals and algae and co.

    No need to turn off any equipment whilst dosing it, unless you are running an alk suppliment on a dosing pump, then I would turn that off if you are dosing close to where alk is being added.
