    Hello. Do any of you use the BRS dosing pumps along with the Apex Controller? If so, can you help me with the programming? Thank You

    So basically my Dkh is at 6.01 and i want to increase it by 0.3 dkh per day to reach a goal and maintain 7dkh. After calculating my tank volume on the reef calculator. It says I need to dose 20.1 ml per day to achieve the daily increase of 0.3 dkh. I was planning to dose equal amounts of Calcium suggested by Randy Holmes until things level out. I am planning to dose manually everyday until I calibrate my dosing pump. I was also told to dose Alk either early morning or Late PM opposite to Cal.

    Im wondering if its okay to dose the 20.1 ml all at once?

    You are only bumping 1 dkh should be fine to do it all at once. Then dose to maintain it.

    Okay but does my calculations seem right?

    Using ESV B-Ionic 2 Part, I would dose 20.1 ml in one serving per day to increase my 150 gallon tank by 0.3 dkh?

    That is good advice for standard dosing.
    But if you are doing a one time large does to fix Alk, that may push calcium up very high if it is already OK.

    The golden rule : Never dose what you have not checked!

    So just to clarify. When i dose the 20 ml Alk. How much longer do i wait to dose the 20 ml Cal ?

    You can do it pretty quickly. When I manually dose into the tank I do them right after the other. If you want to be safe then wait 10 mins.
