    Okay... you asked for it :D

    What is it? Improvised Dosing Device (IDD) made from used plastic bottles and Intravenous dripper purchased from local pharmacy. Very precise (20 drips equal to 1 ml), I can drip a litre of liquid for two weeks continuously. Major element well maintained (calcium 400ppm, dKh 8, magnesium 1380ppm). So far all inhabitants are happy.

    I started a "show me your dosing system" thread yesterday, too. :eek: But you did beat me to it by a couple hours so I've linked to your thread here.

    I dose Fauna Marin Balling light with a GHL 2.1 and just use Nalgene bottles as containers. No pics but it's pretty standard looking :p.
