    It works very well however, if you want to carbon dose read up on vinegar dosing and vodka dosing. Much cheeper. I used to dose NoPox but moved to vinegar. I wont go back.

    Hi r0ckf1re,

    1 - used it since I started my tank. I used the red sea reef mature kit that requires you to use it when you cycle your tank. In total been using for 7 months.
    2 - 88 litres
    3 - depends on the readings from my nitrates test kit. There are different PO4 and NO3 levels to maintain for growth and coloration. On average I dose about 0.75 ml a day.
    4 - daily
    5 - good results. No algae

    The only bad thing is you need to keep an eye on you NO3 - test about 2 times a week. If you don't it can have a significant impact on your corals. Nopox manages all algae including zooxanthellae

    Hope this helps

    Like any carbon dosing. Understand what it is that you're doing and follow the instructions. And test your water.
