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
