Schedule 40 electrical gray. Don't see why it wouldn't work though.

Where to purchase Dosing Storage Containers

I am looking for a place to purchase Dosing Storage Containers. I really like the Vertex Dosing Containers sold by Bulk Reef Supply http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/vertex...container.html - but I am thinking there must be a place to buy them for less money.
Thoughts ? Thanks
Bruce

You could use food storage containers or most likely any kind of drinking bottle.

I use spray bottles. They have a built in hook to hang them from things and most of them have fill level markings so I can measure how much I am using.

The guy at petco had me get these things for starting up my tank o.o! What else could I use? Should I return the siphon and get the one you posted?
Hi im at the initial stage of setting up my saltwater tank.but I have some experience in setting up freshwater tanks. I did the classic mistake of buying all those chemicals when I started my first freshwater tank. Acording to my readings and suggestions by experienced members here, best is to go with RO/DI water and add salt than treating water. Also the foundation of a good aquarium is the live rock system.so before buying bottled bacteria try to cycle with live rock and live sand ( again don't buy a boatloads of expensive live sand.some live sand and dry aragonite will make your whole sand bed live later).refractometers are much better than hygrometers. I dont know how useful those gravel filters are( remember im still starting my tank .hope a more experienced reefer will talk abt this) I already use them in freshwater gravel beds and works fine for that system.dont buy bunch of starter packs or chemicals.read first and cycle your tank well. Invest on a good protein skimmer and good pumps. (Also good lights preferrably LED)then your future costs and loss of livestock will be less.
