Where to get 1ml pump for liquid dosing?
 
I was hoping to put my liquid ferts into a container with a 1ml pump so I can easily dose my nano tanks without having to measure anything. Any suggestions on where to get one? Does anyone here sell something similar?

I'm looking for dosing pumps too, the best deal I found was on e-bay, between 15$-20$

What do you even search under? I'm having trouble figuring out what to call this... When I look online I'm only finding the tops (the actual pump). I want both the bottle and the top. Basically a plastic soap dispenser that dispenses a measured amount per pump.

Could this be similar to what you're looking for?

It's a 1.1 ml/minute dosing pump. They are really well reviewed, and reasonably priced for a pre built pump.

An empty stress coat bottle. They dose one ml per pump.

Sorry I didn't read right, I thought you wanted an electric pump for auto-dosing...

For my 25g I'm using soap dispensers which dose 1ml with each pump, I bought them (empty) for 5$ each at Stokes, it's a store which sells mostly kitchen stuff.

Thanks Cthulu, I'll look into empty soap dispensers. I just didn't know how to find out how much they dispense per pump.

Buy a 3 or 5 ml syringe with plunger taken all the way out, and hold the needle end shut with a finger, then pump once into the open end, measure the volume. Can get syringe on [Ebay Link Removed]

I use spray bottles frome home depot. They dispense anywhere between 3-4ml of fluid each time. (averaging about 3.3ml). I figured this out by taking it and spraying it into a graduated cylinder 10 times to yield a volume then dividing by 10.
