    Hi Reefers, These are countless posts and heated discussions around this topic. We are planning to start ULNS soon.

    What sort of carbon dosing would you choose ?

    1) Np Pellets
    2) Bio Cubes
    3) Vodka/Viniager/Sugar Dosing

    Lets not make this a battle of opinions as there are already threads on this, just your vote that's all.

    Mods if I've missed a poll on this somewhere, please close and point me where it is.

    Thanks andre. I actually wanted to create this exact poll a while ago to get some actual stats on what the guys are using...

    Would you classify NoPox under VSV

    Maybe someone that's deeply investigated the contents of NoPoX could answer for you.


    Bio Cubes the favourite so far.

    I'm not entirely sure that my cubes are working now. Convinced they were but now doubting my self. I don't test, only calcium, alkalinity and magnesium, but my corals are looking good, but have seen them better. Still waiting on orca to release there reactor thing they were talking about as I don't like the bomb method as my airstone is always moving out of place to the top. How do you fix this if others have had this problem.

    Any body know another AUTOMATED system, other than biopellets, to achieve ULNS?

    I would class NOPOX under the vodka dosing regime as it's methanol based and therefore and alcohol.
