    Thanks watched a couple you tube videos of it but didn't see that one. The only think I don't like about it is that it use check valves to keep the fluid in the lines instead of the pump heads pinching the lines. I'm not a real big fan of separate dosing pumps like this rather just control it through my Apex like I have on my SPS tank but I don't really feel like buying an apex for the tank. I figured a cheap dosing pump like that work out okay

    Gotcha, actually I don't dose myself so I can't say which would be a good option. The apex dose is nice but it's really expensive when you also add in the apex unit to the mix.

    Picked up a coral box wifi dosing pump used off reef 2 reef for $125. Set it up temporarily tonight going to watch it for a week to see how accurate it is. Set up and calibration was pretty easy after calibrating it it's pretty accurate. I ll see after a week if it holds it calibration. Overall it seems like a pretty decent unit for the price it's really small can easily be mounted under any stand build quality is okay. The app is easy to use so far I like it. 1514083575974306811398.jpg 1514083737712905735545.jpg
