I have been useing the Libra now for 3 months . easy to program and adjust . as well as doing a quick dose , you can tell it exactly how much to do a spot dose.

do my testing once a week and If i feel the doseing amounts need to change . i can change them in seconds . love it .

If you do decide to go for a Libra be for warned the DC model is very loud IMO.

I also have never heard anything bad about the GHL dosers and those can be found and really good prices

I use the BRS dosers and have for about 6 months now. Picked them up given their cheap cost packaged with bulk supplies, and for a relatively more inexpensive way to try dosing on a big system. So far I have no complains, they work well with my controller, the RKE. I use 4 dosers currently; Mg, Ca, dKH, and vodka or clam food.

Been running a GHL for 2.5 years now without any issues.

I use the BRS dosers. Easy to set up, inexpensive, quiet and reliable.

I've got no complaints.

i would love it if the ghl doser allowed you to do a spot dose! standing there and holding the button down for a minute or more takes forever! well... a minute (sometimes more).

I use a marine Color its a bubble magnus clone, works awesome! and parts are easy to get since its nearly identical to the bubble magnus

let's say you want to on-the-spot add say 60mL to make a larger adjustment to the reef.

GHL gets my vote. I like it so much that I now have two. :biggrin:

BRS dosers hooked up to an Apex.

I have feed D setup to do spot dosing.

If you have an Apex or Reefkeeper, you may as well get these kinds of dosers.

I currently use the state of the art manual doser:) Just part of the daily feeding looking over the tank routine. Thinking of buying a doser though cause it's a pain to portion dosing for someone looking after the house when we are on holidays.

I use the Drew's Dosers from BRS, but different from the BRS brand.

I've been using the GHL stand alone for about 4 years. Love it!

I'm stuck using an aqua medic quad. Someday I will save up more pennies and get something better, although to be honest it's working well for me despite the bad rep they have.

Great choice, there simply is no point paying a little less with a chinese unit, we dont even import the BM ones and we are the distributors.

It may look like a saving but in a year when the $250 unit is landfill the $399 GHL unit suddenly becomes quite appealing with its built proof German build and 2 year warranty ;)

Ya ray at reef supply's was great to deal with. I orderd it Friday at noon and it was here in Alberta ready for pickup Tuesday.
