dosing nopox

just a question about the dosing ratio, is there any benefit from dosing the required dosage in one dose or in smaller doses over a given period of the day as I have seen some people dose in smaller regular doses several times a day

Hi pal, as we discussed last night, it is more beneficial to spread the dosing out over the day to avoid any spikes. 

I dose into my skinner section of the sump which allows a slower indraduction of the foundations to the water column and the outlet of the skimmer mixes it .

Cheers Dave, posted this before I spoke to you, sorted the Alfa grog out as well and as you said it was trapping detritus, now dosing twice a day at 7 my each dose and skimmer is going mad

Over how many hours do you dose as i dose 12 ml per day over a 2 hour period.

I have however started to dose alk over an 8 hour period during the day to keep that as flat as possible so makes sense.
