Anybody ever build a Automatic doser?

All im looking for is a liquid doser, all it has to do is about 5ml a day. Or if anybody had schematics for one that would be greeaaaaaaaaaaaat.

I have seen automatic dosing system at aquarium automation. It is quite cheap, but can exactly dose required amount of fertilizer. There is all needed information: schematics, misrocontroller software and manual how to use it.

have you thought of using an aqualifter pump? Pretty cheap and easy.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Peristaltic pump is far more acurate compared wiht ordinary pump, it is designed for low amounts of fluid. Thats why i chose peristaltic pump. The most cheaper dosing pump can dose only 25ml of fertilizer per minute. There is no other type of pump, which flow rate is so small.
