Put it on a timer that can activate in one minute intervals (or less), and measure how much it doses in one minute.

From there, you can calculate the stock concentration of fertilizer to be prepared.

it has a built in timer. It can be set for 1-99ml per cycle. And also can be set for 1 cycle per hour, or 1 cycle for 9 days. I just want it to dose once a day @7mls... Rite now the pump display reads 071D. Have no clue as to what time it comes on. would like it to dose half hour before lights come on...

How cryptic.

What brand/model number dosing pump do you have? Without more information, we cannot really help.
