Would it be possible to use two kent aquadosers for top off, one for calk and one for buffer? This is assuming I should not mix buffer and calc together in the same container.
Also how do the aquadoser work? Is it just a drip feed? Would I be better off building one myself?

Hot-1 pump?

What pump do you use with the Precision Marine Hot-1 hang on skimmer? It seems like this would be the best skimmer under $200 for a 40 - 55 gal reef, what do you think? Do you like it better than the AquaC Remora?

Heart Broken

Well I lost my tank last week. Came home early for my little girls fifth birthday, went to say high to the tank and notices that every one of my SPS had turned to bright white calcareous skeletons. Well needless to say I went into DEFCON 5 emergency mode: 35gal water change hooked up extra skimmer, light out (all but 96w of 03 PC). Go into questioning mode 1) Kids, 2) Wife, 3) Myself. Well ...

Wild collected Snails from Corpus Christi ( sort of long)

I just returned from a trip to South Padre and Port Aransas Near Corpus. While there, the wind was a steady 30 knots and the surf was high.It had blown a Man-of-War ashore every ten feet. Plus there was TONS of cueleurpa (or something) covering the beach, so I decided that instead of swimming, I would drive to the Jetty in Port Aransas and search the rocks for critters.
What I found was amazing. Living ...
