Default B-Balance dosage to raise per mg/l

Would anyone have done any homework for how much bbal you needed to add to raise your B in any informed way?
I asked Thomas & he just let me know how much he added per day.
Trying to see if anyone else has found themselves low on icp for example & worked out how much they needed to add to say raise your tank 1 meg/l
50ml - 100ml - 500ml ????

I'm sitting at 2.5 - NSW is closer to 4.5

Hi 2una,
You need to add enough to see a positive response in your corals
I guess most people rely more on observation of their corals than ICP tests.

Any heads up on what sign's of overdose to watch out for?
Would it be like a zeospur effect? bailing zoo ?

If you take a look at initial dosage advised on the bottle you might think it's impossible to overdose B Balance.
In case of many blue bottles people say "cut doses in half".
It's not the case with B Balance, at least in my experience.
In my tank I had to dose it heavily to see results.

Yes initial 50-100ml per 100 is quite a large figure......been adding 5ml per 100 a day for the last 3 days.
(i run B-Bal tabs - i'm just trying to put the level back to closer to nsw levels)

Knowing that my B level was low you think i should bump it more?

Where did you get the information that the product contains boron ?

Thank you, just asked as the manufacturer has not published any of the ingredients of B-Balance.
