you can do the dosing and the water change with one DOS unit using solenoids and/or check valves since the head is reversible.

I have two large turbos that are wreaking havoc in my tank. Free to the first person to pick up.

Located in Riverdale.

A small zoa frag for trade would be cool but not necessary.

Aquarium Related Classifieds : Moving: blastos and buttons for sale

Green blastos


Purple/green blastos colony #1 and yellow zoas


Purple/green colony #2


Buttons
Please PM me with offers. Blastos are a little upset in the pictures, I took them right after a water exchange. Colony #1 used to be full (~50% bigger than a golf ball) but a couple of heads have died, so there are "gaps" now. The tank have been maintained "remotely" by me as I am separated from my wife... With a little TLC, these colonies will be beautiful in no time.

Blastos and "I forgot their name" zoas


Pink zippers with red mushrooms and killer vamps in the background

I would like to sell the whole colonies/rocks. I have very little idea how much I should ask for them. Those polyps were $5-10/head when I bought them years ago. I'm moving my tank and only taking my fish. Everything else must go: rock, sand, complete 150 gallon tank setup. Please see my other posts. 
PM me with offers, please.

It would work but at what cost? You'd be dosing, kind of, doing the water change. Price of salt, plus your time. I have an 80 gallon mixed shallow reef and I spend $40 every 5 months in dosing products from BRS. A 175 gallon bucket of Red Sea Coral Pro cost $65 ish. A gallon and a half a day, forty two ish gallons a month, approximately 4 months to use up the 175 gallon bucket.

Same bucket with 5 gallon wc per week lasts about 8 months. $65

Cost of two buckets of Red Sea Coral Pro for 8 months is $130 if doing the daily change (figured off 1 1/2 gallons per day).

I think cost wise pretty similar when adding price for dosing product.

I guess if both methods were automated it's 50/50. I always seem to lose a lot of magnesium on a 5 gallon weekly wc depending on the salt I use so you may have to still dose a little with the 1 1/2 daily changes.

If you are planning on siphoning out water by hand and replacing it daily I'd say just auto some dosing pumps, mix up some two part and enjoy the extra time!

I also run kalkwasser so I barely have to dose alk and calc.

It's totally doable.  Not many do it, but you certainly can.  
I've only done this for brief systems.  I measured by water out (measured by volume in waste container) and countered with volume in reservoir.  I haven't measured by flow in and flow out rates (except while doing large water changes).  In the freshwater world, this is fantastic.  I've done that a few times, and plan to on my next tank.

Dave here was telling me recently about this continuous water change system.  Instead of measuring water out and matching to water in, he measures salinity to know how much to add.  I'm sure he'll chime in.

So I've been thinking of trying this but wanted some other opinions. I've got a frag tank 65g total. Mostly zoas but have a few sps as well so haven't had to dose anything yet. Weekly water changes have kept alk, calcium in a good spot. I picked up the apex dos system and was thinking of setting it up to do my weekly 10g change but do about 1.5g a day instead of the 10g at once. Could I get away with this if I started adding more sps? I know there are a ton of variables but has anyone tried anything like this? Small daily wc and not really dosing. I will of course keep testing and seeing where things are at. I'm mostly intimidated with trying to figure out dosing requirements if I just set this up as a doser and do wc manually. Any input is greatly appreciated

I feed so much that if I didn't use socks the detritus build up would be tremendous in my sump. When I do my weekly tank chores I do pull the sock and let it run open for as long as it takes to do all 4 tank wc, water.testing, cleaning skimmers, etc. Not sure it does much.

You're subjecting these poor snails to your crazy experiments? ;)

Jokes aside, everything sounds solid. I would use a strainer on every drain input. It won't affect water flow whatsoever.
