Dosing Pump with Magnetic Stirrers
As I said in the title I decide to build a  4ch dosing pump with Magnetic Stirrers for Robotank.

The case is from MDF...

and I painted black

and I place everything in my case...

and ready....

Because the bottom of the bottles that I have found is not straight and the magnets are jumping and making a lot of noise I decide to build my own liquid container from polycarbonate in the dimensions of my case...

After that I am going to build a LED light for my Discus Tank...

Hi Aquadominus, that looks really good, now you just need the controller. Isn't it amazing how hard it is to find a decent bottle with a flat bottom, mine are noisy too because the middle has a peak, I actually put my bottles off centered which help. Good luck with your light, I'm sure it will turn out nice.
