Dosing pump

So, I'm considering getting a dosing pump. Have you noticed a significant improvement after installing one? Will I regret getting a three channel pump instead of a 4? Any recommendations on a reliable pump that won't break the bank?

I liked brsí dosing pump, but if it isnít a very heavily stocked sps tank there isnít a reason to dose as long as youíre doing the 10% weekly water changes.

25%-35% water changes every other week work?

Easily. Thereís no need to dose, especially when not testing for what youíre dosing.
