    I found this super cool thread on how to build a very cool Arduino based doser for under R800:p

    Arduino Controlled Dosing Pumps | Fish Tank Projects

    Most off the parts is very cheap on ebay, think its even possible to build this doser for under R500:thumbup:

    Looks so easy and simple.....

    It's a pity I'm not a DIY 'fundi' otherwise I would have tried this setup.....

    ..... Completely out of my league dude lol.

    But I have an Arduino and a MarineMagic spare pump............ Like Albe mentioned elsewhere though, sometimes a prebuilt one is cheaper? At least the RA one has a support system. A doser knd of scares me if I mess it up.....
