    prefer Plain vodka less issues plus you can measure accurately to the drop

    Im using it. After lots of reading, it seems that vodka works the best. My PO4 and NO3 are both at 0

    I've been adding several prodibio additives for some time & recently started special blend where so far No3 & Po4 is almost untraceable also other parameters are stable & tested regularly. Now if I include this VSV method would there be any bacteria clashes or too much carbon dosing? I don't want to go overboard & crash the system or start a bacterial bloom or am I already adding too much?

    I just use biodigest as my bacteria source and vodka. Keep things simple mate. Dont mix too many things.. If your current set up is working for you then stick to it, if it aint broke dont fix it :)
