I'm using the Neptune DOS Doser. Does anyone else have a clogging problem with using a doser for the Easy Sps Evo

Where are you all buying this? And do the bags come ready to hook up to a doser or do you need to purchase add ons? CoralVue’s site is vague.
There are several online vendors that carry both. The smaller 250mL bags usually come with adapters (at least the sps Evo does), but the larger 1500mL bags need the pro adapter. BRS, Marine Depot, Saltwater Aquarium, etc. I think I bought my first pouches from CoralVue?

Instead of the pro adapter I just poked a hole in the top, stuck a tube in it, and connected that tube to my doses. Works perfectly, and that 1500ml is so much cheaper it’s def the way to go.

Wouldn't that mess up the package and it's shelf life, letting air in?

Now we have used EasySPS for about a month in our experiment tank at work. It's a sexual reproduction experiment and we want to feed the corals as much as we can without getting too high nutrient levels.
So far it looks like the corals like it. We have great polyp expansion all day, so at least they senses there's something good in the water :)
Can't say anything about the growth since temp, light duration and intensity changes over time(to mimic natural conditions).

We dose 1ml at the time, of Easybooster and EasySPS, 16 times a day with dosingpums(GHL). I like to have some food in the water all the time. So 16ml of each every day. The volume of the tank is in total 1100 litres.

If dosing this in the sump, will my UV sterilizer have any negative impact on EVO or Easy Booster?

Thanks.

Have you tracked your P04 levels since using this product? Any numbers you can share? I'm not sure of this being any different than ReeRoids for example.

I tend to think with all these foods that they are adding P04 to the water once broken down and that's the benefit more than corals actually consuming it. Maybe nitrogen as well if there is amino acid in the mix.

Tanks with low P04 levels would benefit more than say a tank with substantial nutrients that have a heavy fish load and feed a lot.

In other words a lot has to do with a specific systems make up...........one with no fish would benefit whereas one with a moderate/heavy fish population may not see a difference.

I can check for more specific numbers tomorrow at work, but my gut feeling says ReefRoids contain more phosphate per gram compared to the frozen food we use, and EasyReef, Booster and SPS.

Otherwise I agree. Some tanks might just need that phosphate addition. Or nitrate/ammonium.

Should we avoid mechanical filtration (filter pad, filter floss) when using these two products?
Hello,
You don't need to stop using the mechanical filtration when dosing our products as this filtration methods won't affect the product's performance.
