What ferts for a High Tech 10G?

I currently have KN03, K2S04, KH2P04, and Plantex CSM + B that I bought from Nilocg. What should my dosing be for a 10Gal, with DIY CO2 (I may also dose excel as well...not sure yet)?

I am currently trying to figure the lighting situation out for the 10. Never kept such a small tank, let alone a high tech tank.

Also I plan on keeping just 1 carpet plant with a dirted substrate.

55 Gallon Planted

Fish
3 GBR, 2 Bolivian Rams, 1 Juvenile Super Red BN Plecos, 9 Oto Catfish, 9 Bloodfin Tetras
Plants
Rotala Indica, Cardamine, Crypt Spiralis, Pygmy Chain Swords, Dwarf Sag, Lutea Crypt, Wendtti Bronze and Red, and Floating Frogbit

It depends on what kind of dosing regimen you want to follow. Common dosing methods include Estimative Index (EI) and PPS-Pro.

More information can be found in my short write-up "A Primer to Planted Tanks" (linked in my signature below).

I suppose enough to keep a carpet lush and green. Thats really all I plan on growing. Trying the keep 1 or 2 species of plants from the same region. Not going all out for this one. This will only be my first high tech tank.

Well, either of the aforementioned dosing regimens will work fine - they both achieve the same final goal (providing nutrients to plants), but go about achieving that goal in different ways.
