We want to give TB aquatics a huge thanks for making a simple, reliable dosing pump available at an affordable price. $85 for an American made peristaltic pump is quite a steal but frankly, it’s about time the hobby had access to a basic dosing pump. The peristaltic tubing is made from neoprene which should outlast most silicone peri tubing. The quiet motor pushes 1.5ml per minute and the dosing can be reduced by using a timer to turn the pump on and off at regular intervals. The $85 price was a MACNA show special but we bet that if you asked nicely, TB aquatics would likely extend that value for at least another week.
