I had some problems with my calcium reactor and started hand dosing.  I keep a log and didn't realize that I had been dosing by hand for two years now.  I finally got around to buying a dosing pump.  The Aqua Medic seems like a nice unit because it comes with a programming unit.  I will come back and update this thread once I have had a little experience with the unit.  It has four dosing pumps.  Right now I have it set up for alk and calcium, but once I get a new Mag test kit I will dose that as well.  I'm looking forward to the automation.

A great many threats face reef environments.  An informed marine aquarist can be part of the solution, not a contributor to the problem.

It just does not make sense not to learn something new everyday.

Reacting was always such a pain. I think dosing is the way to go. just easier and basically idiot proof (especially with a good log). Hope everything is good, Mark. It's been a while.
