View Full Version : dosing requirements

10/07/2012, 12:10 PM
New to the hobby and forum. Curious to find out if you guys could recommend which two part dosing to use. I currently have B-Ionic Alk, CA and Mag. Currently cycling tank, so not dosing anything yet.

Also, how the heck do I post a new thread? Thanks.

Moved to a new thread to keep the discussions all separate. :) There's a "New Thread" button in the upper left area of the screen, about an inch below the bottom of the RC tang logo.

B-Ionic is a fine way to get started. I used it for years. I'd use up what I had, and then consider switching to a DIY formula if the cost looked significant.

Awesome! That's exactly what I am going to do. B-Ionic is expense. Have you used BRS's two part. Any opinion on their two part?

Their two-part seems to be fine. I actually got a 50 lb bag of the old Dow, so I haven't had to buy any supplies for a while. :) If I needed some calcium chloride, I'd likely buy from BRS or Buckeye, at this point.
