DSRreefing

Full DSR

Full DSR, Dutch Synthetic reefing

With the DSR Method it is possible to establish a stable and controlled reef environment. It’s an all-in-one reef aquarium maintenance solution. The costs of running the DSR method are a fraction of reef salt needed for regular water changes. You learn to understand the way things work and you get more control of the biochemical processes in your reef aquarium.

Below you will find all DSR components to go full DSR.  For EZ-DSR, click here.
