    I am also using the Eheim Liquidoser and have to dilute Start2. I have diluted it 50% so that I can use three cycles with an effective dosage of .5ml per cycle to get to my 1.5ml per day.

        Hi Mike, that doesn't sound correct. How much are you wanting to dose of Start2 per day? How much liquid will each dose container hold? Thnx. Bob

            The Liquidoser doses 1 ml per rotation with up to 8 rotations per 24 hr. period.

              Mike, remember, we need to figure what your weekly amount of Start2 will used used. For example, if you want 1ml. Start2 dosed per day then you will use 7ml Start2 to 73ml water to give you a total of 80ml liquid/wk. Bob

                    And also, why are the recommendations made in this forum so different (far more conservative) than the recommendations made by the manufacturere?

                          Mike, then add RODI water to 22.5 ml of Start2 to make up to 80ml for your personal concentration of Start2 for your doser. If you notice OD signs just dilute this again by 50%. You will not lose any corals with ZS2, assuming your tank is stable. Bob

                            Bob - Which Mike were you referring to? Ha ha

                            I may have been wrong in my above post as I might have been thinking of my Start 1 dosage routine.

                            I need to go back and look at my bottles to see if I actually diluted the Start 2. I write on the bottles what I do with them so it is easy enough.

                            I just set it up as Bob suggested (I will need to go back and look at my post-it) for my dosage. I think he suggested to me to add 1.4ml twice daily for my 500 net gallon system. I think I have it set to go off three times a day with a 50" dilution now that I think about it which gives me 1.5ml per day. The tank is doing great so I haven't fiddled around with anything in a while.
