    hi guys

    im in the process of setting up my new tank and it will be fully automatic so I'm going to have 4 dosing pumps available. i have filled up three already with red sea abc+ which is a all round supplement with pretty much every thing, reef energy a and the other with reef energy b. I'm not too sure what i will dose with the 3rd one. the system will be a bio pellet system so i won't need any carbon or anything so what do you guys suggest dosing

    thanks

    i have got an auto top up but i don't need to dose anything with calcium etc. because of the red sea abc+ which is a supplement for everything basically with regards to calcium, magnesium etc.

    so what else could i dose ?

    without sounding obtuse, whatever you test for and find lacking and measurwable

    Agreed - your tests should tell you what to dose and how often to dose. DON'T DOSE if you haven't tested :)
