    Dosing pump is more accurate

    i use a dosing pump on a 500ltr system and it keeps up with it no problem using around 1 litre of calcium mix and 1 litre of alk buffer per week, I only have seven or eight lps corals so the uptake isn't huge, as they grow and I add more corals I may need to dose more meaning bigger dosing tubs or mixing up additives more than once a week,
    then it may be time to look at using a calcium reactor. So I guess it probably depends on the size of tank, the amount of corals and the amount you need to dose as to what's the best way to go.

    I have a Jebao dosing setup to sell at the mo, had about 2x weeks use. Has 3x pumps, containers, mounting shelf, etc.. (i.e. everything you need less what you want to dose).

    Am happy to post as Kirby is a bit far from me.
