When i was vodka dosing i followed instructions on the MB7. Heavy for 2 weeks. To build up bacteria then started the vodka and always added the MB7

The reason I stopped is I would like to have my tank running good enough that I don't need the vodka. The only way to see is stop and what it does. Today I upgraded my skimmer which was a big need and I will see how that does. The TurboFlotor T1000 is in the shed
