Lets have a shot if vodka :b

Ok, so while researching aquarium stuff online I stumbled over a thing that's totally new to me: Vodka Dosing for aquariums O.O

It's supposed to lower nitrates and PO4
Anybody here have any experience with that?

Here is a link http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2008-08/nftt/index.php

Be very careful. Carbon dosing is a delicate thing to do and can destroy a reef if not done properly.

I don't dose vodka, I use a different method of carbon dosing. I use bio-pellets in a reactor.

I think I will stay away from it for now. 10 gal does not give much margin for error.

What size tank? It is just a carbon source. Ususally for large tanks. Just drink the vodka and everything will be fine.
