Dosing... pumps etc. What is everyone using

Postby GOSKN5 » Wed Nov 01, 2017 1:13 pm

What does everyone do for dosing? Right now I dose manually with reef fusion 2 part. I am not good at being consistent on amounts or schedule...

Considering a dosing pump and/or different product...

Thoughts???

Personally I just throw kalk in my top off. And stir. No measuring. Just toss and stir. All of my high end birdnests seem to be thriving. Lol. I just commented to follow along.

I think Barry is more of a taste tester so as long as it tastes good it's all alright by him

Depends on the tank size and amount of sps.
I did 2 part for 4 years on my talks with dosing pumps. Just recently switched to Cal reactor because I couldn't keep up with the demand and it became me economical.

I don't think I will ever exceed 2 part, I only have a few mini colonies of SPS... probably 80% LPS and softies...

I am debating a dosing pump tho... would prefer an all in one type over the controller and all.. mostly for space and money reasons...

I’m trying to figure out what to do now. My alkalinity is slowing dropping and I’m sure I’ll have to use 2 part soon.

I use the BRS dosing pumps and run them through the reef keeper.
