I know how to use it but what I not understand is
Why add again 1kh and Gh 5 if it's already is in the tank
So my quastion is I just need to add 24 ppm calcium to the RO water not 24 ppm of calcium in the tank this is a big difrent

yes that looks correct, you can even try 6 ppm mg before you increase it to 8 ppm

long as you have 10-20 ppm of K+ in your tank water, no matter how you get it, it wont matter much.
