Mineral drip question

I am wanting to set up a drip system for my tank for the different minerals and such that I am adding to the tank: calcium, iodine, etc. Does anyone have a recommendation on which brand of drip to look in to or if they even sell one specifically for saltwater tanks. I can get surplus medical supplies and would be able to get what I need there but I would prefer to have a system that's made for tanks.

Bulk Reef Supply sells little dosing pumps that can gang together. I have gone with using the medical pumps as I like some of the features that have. I dose alk, cal and a little bit of reef micro elements. I do not dose, or recommend dosing iodine. Never dose anything like that that you can't test for is the best rule.

Thanks! I'll go with the medical ones. I dont really dose the iodine. I dose with calcium, carbonate alkalinity, nitrate reducer, and a mineral replenisher. I add a very small trace of the iodine because of my carnation corals. Do they make a stand for the medical drips?

They clamp to a pole or sit flat on a shelf.
