    I don't have any dosing pumps, no controllers, and I don't do the BRS 2 part per the directions either.
    I do dose/drip some things, but it's more like a calculated 'seat of the pants' thing based on my previous readings.

    Today, I haven't checked my big 3 in over 3 weeks.
    Since that check I have done a 15% WC, and dosed some things, including my daily drip of 60ml vinegar with 30ml Kalwasser- mixed into a gallon of RO/DI and dripped in slowly to my sump over about 3 hours.

    I do have a fairly large coral load.

    So today I had:
    Alk- 8.5
    Ca- 430
    Mg-1500

    Overall pretty happy with those #'s!

    somehow I have to believe it's an informed and experienced 'seat of your pants' lol

    Not bad. Can't wait till I get to that amount of stability.
