Other uses for dosing pump?

Recommended Posts

Sector001
I am switching from 3 part dosing (calcium, alk and magnesium) to a single solution (Tropic Marin All-for-Reef). It's an all in one solution.
 
I have a Bubble Magus 3 head dosing pimp and a 3 chamber dosing solution container. As I will only be using one of the chambers for dosing the Tropic Marin All-for-Reef, I was wondering if there are any other things I can use the 2 extra chambers to dose?
 
I was thinking live phytoplankton that I get from Algae Barn, but that needs to be kept chilled?
 
Any ideas as to what I could use the extra 2 chambers and dosing pump to automatically add to my tank?
 
It's a 20 gallon Waterbox cube, mixed reef.

You could keep a live culture (with light and air tubing).  It'd be a fairly simple setup.

Depending on need, it could be:

  • inorganic nutrients (like nitrate)
  • trace elements
  • amino acids
  • carbon (vinegar)
  • kalkwasser
  • RO/DI top off water

IDK, I might try the phyto and top off water. :unsure:
