I have used an autodoser on and off for about 3 years. My main advice is to go more dilute ex: dosing at a rate of about 0.5-1mL per gallon of tank water. So for a 100g tank. Dose 50mL. This is because you'll get better accuracy of each dose with a bigger volume and importantly, you won't get salt crust on your input lines or precipitation on the bottom of your dosing bottles that may clog the lines.
