Long overdue for an update but it has been 30 days since I started dosing. I was out of town for a few weeks so I only dosed 3ml per day in my system which is about 220 total gallons Of actual water. I did not see any results that I could speak of during the first 3 weeks of dosing most likely because I was dosing such a low amount. I have upped the dose to 6ml per day for now and feel that I am starting to see better PE and faster growth in the last week since I upped the dose. I will soon be upping the dose again so I hope to see more results.
Yeah, 3mL a day isn't much in a 220, but it's better to start low, then slowly increase to allow your tank to adjust. Keep us posted.

Does anyone here double dose? I have been dosing 6ml daily on my 100g tank and would like to ramp it up. Anyone see any problems with this?

Just add 1mL at a time and go from there. I like small changes and observe before adding more. So if you're dosing throughout the day, just spread out the addition. Wait a week, then add a little more. Check your alk, N and P before you make the change, then test again before you add more.
Just go slow, no matter what changes you make.

I just put mine in an airtight mason jar. Have you had any issues with it going bad being out of the bag?

Nope, not in airtight. When I had it in one of those generic dosing containers it got a gross discolored film on top so I had to throw it out. It also smelled way worse than usual lol so I'm not sure if it was safe

What was your transfer method to avoid air exposure? It may not matter, just asking for myself. At some point I need to hook mine up to the doser as well.

The mouth of the bag nozzle is a perfect fit for the voss bottle I use, I just push the button to pour over, there's a little exposure during that time frame and while I screw the lid back on but I've refilled 3x with no discoloration like I saw with the other style doser.

Yeah same for me, it wasn’t exposed long at all.
