How much Equilibrium do I dose after doing a water change? I took 6 litres of water out. So 1.5 Gallon?

Hi, so, I’m trying to figure out how much Equilibrium to dose. A decent amount of water was already evaporated and I’m doing a water change, so I took out 6 litres of water out.

My current TDS is 219-221.
My GH went Green after 8 drops.

I don’t want to add to much because I don’t want it going over 8 (GH).

So how much Equilibrium would I have to add to replace that 6 litres I took out?

Seachem Equilibrium label;
Directions: To raise Mineral content/general hardness (GH) by 1 meq/L (3 dH), add 16 g (1 tablespoon) for every 80 L (20 US Gallons) when setting up an aquarium or when making water changes (add to new water). For optimum stability we recommend mixing 1 L (1 qt.) of water (the resulting mixture will have a white opaque appearance.)

When this mixture is added to the aquarium it will impart a slight haze that should clear within 15-20 minutes.

Hints: Do not use Equilibrium when replacing evaporated water. This dose is based on DI or RO water; for other water measure hardness (GH) first, then add according to need.
