    It's been quite a while since my last post. My soft and LPS corals have been growing rapidly and developed nice colors. Coraline algae has finally started growing and I also stocked up on some SPS corals. That increased my Ca/Alk/Mg demand drastically. I do weekly water changes and thought that...

    Hi Guys, Tried Vodka dosing for the first time recently. I'd been feeding liberally in my very small 12" cube reef thinking that my nitrates where all being cycled. However, I got a very large shock when I tested them and found they were 50ppm. A discolouring SPS alerted me. I've never had a...

    Hello all. I'm looking for some help with utilizing my Neptune DOS for dosing Calcium/Alk and possibly even Mg (even if i have to switch out containers for a few hour period). I was struggling with Ca, Alk, and Mg levels before but I have seemed to level them out. Now I have a high pH issue...

    was reading on some threads about carbon dosing and nitrate control and came across a tip that when carbon dosing sometimes corals can have rapid tissue necrosis from bad bacteria that fuel and bloom off of the carbon source as much as the beneficial bacteria that we try to increase/skim out...

    Ok, I have seen several people here getting their parameters twisted around backwards and upside down dosing for Calcium and Alk. The Question is when do you think it is necessary to dose, what should you dose, and what should you know before you start. By when is it necessary I am...

    I weekly dose calcium buffer, trace elements, magnesium, strontium, etc. I would like to set up a dosing pump. How do I set up a dosing pump, and how does it work? Also, I want to add an auto top-off system to my tank. Does anyone have some good cheap recommendations and tips for adding an auto...

On their website it says the product is designed for ultra low nutrient systems but it also helpsreverse bleaching by removing excess nutrients... I'm puzzled here because it is an amino acid complex...
