This site is steadily being updated. This is a hobby project of a reef enthousiast, so it wil take some time to fully build this.
Do you want like to take reefing one step futher than the usual anemone with a couple off clownfishes?
Do you hate water changes?
Do you like to learn more about the reef dynamics?
Are you struggling to get control over your tank?
If you don't have any problems doing periodic measurements and all above are answered "YES", than you should consider running DSR.
Keeping a Reef Aquarium has been a elite sport . Until now...!
It's my mission to make reefkeeping affordable en understandable for everybody, and to get it out off the elite corner.
The DSR Calculator is a spreadsheet which helps you to calculate the righ amount of supplements needed to adjust your water parameters.
There are 15 Supplement which are being used in the DSR Method to control all essential water parameters.
When developing the DSR Method, I used these instrument / test kits. The choice was based on: Price, availability, reliabilty, consistency and ease of use.
