    Any reason why one of these wouldn't be suitable for aquarium dosing?

    http://www.cateringparts.com/media/SEKO$20PR$20Peristaltic$20Pumps.pdf

    They come in a variety of sizes, down to 0.4l/h so that's a dosing of roughly 6.6ml/min and some are speed controllable as well for fine-tuning, I was thinking that this could be a more cost-effective version a dosing pump (as soon as someone slaps medical certification, or something to do with aquariums on a piece of equipment the price rockets).

    If people think that they're pretty good, I'm thinking of getting one to dose all-in-one solution, good idea or not?

    Cheers,

    Matt
