Carbon dosing


New member
I just started building a 90 gallon reef. Was wondering when I can start dosing vodka. Would like to carbon dose before I get nitrate problems or ph problem


I wouldnt dose until your tank is more mature. I'd let the natural cycle do its thing and maybe start around the 6 month mark if you have the bioload necessary to warrant dosing.
Also why vodka? There are way cheaper sources of carbon dosing, like sugar or vinegar.
