    guys though the years we have become exposed to various forms of carbon sorce dosing,

    zeo
    probio
    vodka, sugar, rice
    bio pellets
    and orca cubes

    where are we now which has proven the most user friendly yet at the same time effective?

    are we moving off of them again and exploring conventional methods?

    thoughs and comments welcomed...

    I switched from a algae scrubber to Nopox.

    I am very happy with the product. I don't think my tank has ever looked better.

    I think nopox is the cheapest commercially produced carbon dosing method on the market, but I may be wrong. (Obviously vodka and vinegar is cheaper)

    Point is I am very happy with the product, I get good results and it lasts a while on my tank.

    I don't think I will go back to natural filtration...

    I used NoPox but decided to change to a locally produced product. Not only is it good for the environment but its fantastic for recycling
