I have a 210 gallon reef and the 1 Gallon jugs just aren't cutting it. What do you guys have that is bigger then 1 gallon for my alk, calcium and magnesium?
Thanks

Unfortunately off the shelf there's not too much that is significantly larger than a gallon. What we did on the 160, and on my tank at home is simply taking 5 gallon buckets, drilling them for tank adapters, inserting rigid acrylic tube into them, and using that to store our two part. You'll need these parts:

You could also use ATO containers like the Trigger ones that they sell...

EShoppes makes a decent, compact, 5g container for ATO systems.

You can use 3 or 5 gal water cooler containers. Find the ones with a screw lid and drill a hole in it for the 1/4" DIA rigid plastic tubing. I got my containers at Walmart about 5 years ago.

Good point, I ran a few of my old tanks that way.
