I need to replace my IV doser since I broke one of the sides that doses the 2-part additive. Do you know what rate the Aquamedic Reef Doser dispenses liquid? I guess it doses at a constant rate and you just set how long you want it to run. I need to know if it is precise enough for my nano tank. I only need about 36ml of A & B per day.

Or if you have any other suggestions for a good doser that is under $200, please let me know.

Thanks!

check http://www.innovativeaquatics.com/ for a number of dosing pumps.

It doses 15ml/min with the tubing that comes with it. However, you can get other tubing from Omega that will allow you to lower the rate by 1/2 or 1/4, etc. That's what I did anyway. You just buy the Santoprene tubing with a smaller internal diameter and rig it up in the loop.

If it's the sp 3000, it doses at 3lt per hr.

He's right. I was wrong. I had my wife read it to me over the phone and she said fifty and I heard fifteen. My bad. Still the tubing replacement stuff stands. You can lower the flow with smaller diameter Santoprene tubing.

The 3lt/min is 50ml/min ... not the 15 I originally noted.
