This is not a thread to see why to or how to vodka dose. Just want to know if you do it or not and what are the good things that you have observed as well as what are the bad things.
1. So, do you dose vodka?
2. And MOST important what are the pros and the cons to it?
Please people I need negative and positive things here that have actually happened in YOUR tank.
This is a very valid point Chort. Overdosing can cause a bacteria bloom that can consume all of the oxygen in your tank and have disastrous consequences. However many things if over done can cause problems. Carbon dosing is a tool that must be thoroughly researched prior to implementation. One must have a complete understanding of what they are doing with this method possibly more than many other aspects of reef keeping. Heavy protein skimming is also a must.

From my research on it ya just need to start slow and work your way up or your tank can really get screwed up and bad things can happen.... just like with personal vodka dosing
