I started dosing vodka about 5 weeks ago I have about a hundred gallons total volume. I started with 5ml weekly increased it a half a ml a week. At about 3 weeks I noticed kinda like a white powderish stuff on my rocks but it went away in about 2 or 3 days. The reason I started is because I couldn't get my nitrates and phosphate down I tested my water every week and today is the first time I tested that my nitrates are 0 and phosphate are just trace. I also had a algae problem where I had to clean my glass twice a day and clean it from the sand bed Yesterday was the first day in a long time that I didn't have to clean algae off the glass or sand this is day two WOOT WOOT. So I would say it works.

It can also promote other bacteria you won't be so happy with. I had no problem with Cyanobacteria until I started dosing carbon. Between that and bacteria blooms, I am done with carbon. Will use alternate methods to reduce organics from now on. Trying something new didn't work for me very well.

im starting to notice cyano creeping up, but im ok as long as it doesn't get out of hand because im attempting to get my trates down to 5 or so, that way I wont have to do enormous water changes to get there.

I have been using red sea no3/p04 instead of vodka and my tank is crystal clear also nitrates just plummet when I dose. And I only use it when they creep up
