    Hi guys, just though i would share my DIY glass dosing container that i build a couple weeks ago for use with my Marine magic tripple doser.

    I built it to fit beside my new sump which is much smaller that the original.
    The overall dimensions are 215x200mm & 300mm high.
    The volume of each compartment is 3.7l which is enough to last about 2 months for calcium & alkalinity.
    In the third compartment, i havent yet decided whether im going to dose aquavitro fuel or trace orca reef extrax...

    The top panel as 3x 6mm holes for the dosing pipes going into the container & 3x 12mm holes on the opposite side for filling the container with calcium, alk & fuel/reef extrax.

    Great stuff, onlt a small little problem I spot there.

    If you use power supplements mixing the liquid up might be a problem.

    Otherwise great job !

    Agree, lol, will have to shake the whole container then...:lol:
    Luckily i only dose DIY supplements which don't precipitate that much.

    Is the "lid" siliconed on or can it be removed for cleaning etc.

    It is siloconed, but i do have a special cleaning brush that reaches inside the whole container...
    I originally wanted to make the lid removable but decided to rather make it a sealed bix to prevent spills & make it stronger...
