    I already posted a couple of pics on the board here somewhere. I think it was in response to one of Alrha's questions if I'm not mistaken...

    awsome

    thats the ticket! I've seen those pics before somewere or something similar. That is perfect for someone with no sump or even with a sump! good for smallish tanks.

    it is great. for now i just laid out the $20 US for the Kent Marine Doser, but it would never compare to that one as it even leaves room to settlement. one day when i get handy...

    I think it's a 1/2" NPT thread to 1/4" hose adaptor.
    Should be able to find that at home depot.
