Be careful with the Jebao DP dosing pumps. I have one head that isn't consistent. Every time I have tried to calibrate it it will dose anywhere from 90 to 110 ml with the same calibration setting. The other head is dead on after calibration.

So after I figuring out my daily evaporation, I divided the amount by 6 and use the inconsistent head to dose RODI water every 4 hours. It is good enough for that, but would not trust it to dose alkalinity or calcium.

Following this for sure!
I restarted my journey of nanos with a Max Nano (Recently upgraded to a 3’ 20g) and would love to see what way you take with it longterm :)
Nano tank has a special place in my heart haha. I had a 120 for a year and a half, but decided that big tank wasn't for me at all

Thanks for the heads up. At the moment I'm still dosing manually. But with that being said, I might just go and invest in an ecotech dosing unit or a redsea dosing unit. Just to be safe

Nanos are my favourite things to mess with. There’s just so many fish that you can’t have in larger tanks but can have in smaller tanks.

Does it matter to you whether your fish are captive-bred or wild caught?
