the measurements for instant ocean when mixed new should be around these values shen sg =1.026 at temp 25C. these values were confirmed when several new batch of water was made from different buckets and averaged out.
if you have a reef with alot of corals then some amount of dosing is going to be required depending on bio load, however if you mostly have fish i wouldn't dose anything at all. if you only have a few corals i probably wouldn't dose anything either because water changes will replace trace elements. in my tank i only measure the "big 3" that is ca, mg, alk! i almost never measure ph,and never phosphate, nitrite, ammonia, nitrate since the tank matured, i just know they are within the parameters by looking at live stock.
