Great looking Tank!! I have a question for you, I had purchased components 1-2 and 3. trying to figure out how to set up my doser, to run the component's. My tank stat's: 125 Gallon mixed reef, 50 gallon sump. I dose alk and cal at the moment. I'm having a hard time trying to figure out how many ML to dose. I have used the Aqua forest calculator, but im confused.

I have used the Aqua forest calculator, but im confused.
What I did was dosed it to 8.0 then I shut the doser off for 4 days and tested at the same time every day. Then I averaged the daily drop to find my daily consumption and used the calculator to find the ML I still test alk every few days and need to up it a ml every few weeks. More often if I add a bunch of sticks
 

Have you ever used a spoon, hose and rubber band together to remove algae?
