I never thought about that. The longer you maintain such stable levels, you begin to just expect the numbers to always be consistent. You slowly fall out of the habit of closely monitoring parameters. Alkalinity is such a crucial aspect of a reef tank, yet it can be so easily forgotten about. It makes sense that automating everything from testing to dosing could be game-changing. It takes human error out of the equation. I know with certainty that there are times I forget to test my Alk, or would have forgotten to dose entirely. Now I have a dosing pump which I'm working on tuning in, so I'm testing daily. Here's what I find interesting; Maybe I'm just seeing things, but the more I tighten the Alk swings, the more polyp extension I see from the corals.
