    Carbon dosing and alk

    I have been dosing vodka in my 34g with pretty good results. Keeping nitrates below 10 and phosphates around .02 or lower. I feed heavily and skim heavily and it seems to be working well for me. Lately I have been reading that you should keep your alk on the lower side with vodka dosing between 7-8. Anyone have any experience with this? Mine is usually around 8-9. I was reading anything above 8 could.cause bleached tips in sps. I haven't noticed any though.

    Now, when you say "dose", you are taking shots and then watching your tank? I don't vodka, but I do BP. Hopefully we'll get others to chime in on carbon dosing.
