Marine Depot has the nano kits on sale for about $20. I will check my LFS first, though, since I'm a little leery about 30 glass tubes being shipped.

One question - since this stuff is essentially pre-measured carbon dosing (well, some of it is), did you put an airstone in your tank, and is your skimmer going bonkers?

I ordered from marine depot great shippers...no airdrome and I have heard that when you start dosing reef booster makes the skimmer go crazy but to be safe I turn my skimmer of for a couple hours after I dose and when I start reef booster I will dose before lights go off and turn on in the morning

I did my first dosing yesterday after my PWC, and when I added the reef booster, my water clouded up. Did that happen to you?

I haven't added reef booster yet...most people wait 6 weeks til a large bacteria colony is present (by dosing bio digest and bioptim for the 6 weeks) and tank has low in nutrients...I might dose reef booster for my first time next week but I haven't decided yet because I still have some algae so might wait another two weeks

But too answer your question I have read that it does cloud your tank

Frag...I will hold off for a few weeks on the 2nd dose then. I'll just do the others in 2 weeks.
