Conclusion of dry auto dosing experiment

The Lifegard Auto Feeder is a champ for this application. It holds up to two weeks of dry ferts and doses very specific quantities in each compartment. It has worked very well now for over a month. I had no problems wirh ferts getting mushy or clumping. I use it in conjunction with an Eheim Liquidoser for Excel and Tropica Master Grow. Theoretically it should work alone with a dry trace like CSM but I haven't tried this and don't know well this would dose dry. Anyway for me it seems to me like the simplest least expensive way to do auto dosing.


I also tried the Rondomatic Auto feeder and it didn't work at all for this application.
