This colony grew too big an pressing against the rocks on the sides. Too heavy for the tiny base too.

Soaked in iodine & re-glued back onto the colony. Hopefully its gone for good.

Installed the Versa this weekend. 

Well built continuous use peristaltic pump. And highly controllable with the Ecotech Mobius app.

Calibration was quite simple. You can actually calibrate to the exact amount you want to dose (even large volumes) which makes it very accurate.

In my case, i'm using it for Kalkwasser dosing. So its set to dose 1.5L of Kalk when lights are off (12am - 11am)

And 500ml of kalk when lights are on (11am - 12am).

I think the best part of the versa dosing pump is that it can be programmed to run at certain speed , dosing rate at different tike of the day. Just got hold of mine today as well..
