    I can't find the link. But here's a pic off Google uploadfromtaptalk1450286800465.jpg so you would plumb your tank into the fridge. Inside the fridge you'd does the food into the pipes. Then it would exit the fridge back to your return line where it would inter the tank.

    No way I would ever do that to my tank, that means you are cooling the water ALWAYS to dose... SOMETIMES. I would have 3 lines from the dosers coming out and feeding into a drop tube that sits directly above my return. Also i would be concerned that the vacuum created by the water flowing past the dosing line in a closed system would cause extra stress on the doser and eventually wear out the gears or the silicone tube in the doser.

    In my case I have halides and I have trouble with temp getting high.
