Yes i agree i guess that would be considered dosing i think a reactor is easier than a two part once its dialed in it stays on point havn touched it in 3 months and that was just to change co2 but ya no other chemicals no plankton no buffer no magnesium no trace elements no strontium no iodine

Yeah, I agree. A reactor is probably a better, more constant situation than dosing 2- part, even dosing daily still has a certain amount of fluctuation. It's the set-up and the cost, that has always scared me away from it.
Besides the Ca and Alk, I run the same as you, no supplemental dosing of anything chemical. I do add live Phyto though, once a week.
