|Catf1sh||^^ I guess it's back to the good old drop checker method..|

|Hoppy||Has anyone seen data showing the range of ppm of CO2 in water exposed to room air? Without knowing that, the de-gas method for measuring CO2 isn't accurate at all. A 1pH drop caused by CO2 means the ppm of CO2 went up by a factor of 10. But, if you don't know where it started you don't know what to multiply by 10 to get the ppm of CO2. People assume it will start at 3 ppm, but I haven't seen the data to prove that.|

|Catf1sh||How effective is the de-gas method at measuring co2?|

Been useing this method for sometime now 50% WC on Sundays, Nutrient dosing is done following the water change.
Su, Tu, Th: 1 tsp KNO3, 1/8 tsp KH2PO4, 1/4 tsp K2SO4
M, W, F: 10 ml Plantex/iron from a stock solution of 2 tbsp in 500ml water. Since then i have rescaped my tank to mostly anubis from a stocked tank of stems/root feeders an moss, questiin is should i cut back on any of the ferts? Not seeing any algae or anything so i guess i would be doing it to be a cheapskate lol anyway what do u guys think?
This is my tank now.

Just checking on some calculator calculations. Assuming I have the right plant density lighting etc. I want to make two bottles with the listed items. Does this seem right?
Kno3 - 27.25tsp per 500ml with 5ml doses - 7.5ppm
KH2P04 - 5.3tsp per 500ml with 5ml doses - 1.3ppm
K2S04 - 37.2tsp per 500ml with 5ml doses - 7.50ppm
Plantex = 17.1tsp per 500ml with 5ml doses - .50ppm
Iron 11% = 10.1tsp per 500ml with 5ml doses - .50ppm

|newbieplanter||Thought I was done but last question, this is what I'm dosing my 70gal high light tank with the same as this beside the GH booster n bakin soda. All plants are fine an thriving but I do notice that when I grab a stem on accident it actually snaps no bending at all not even a little bit. Can anyone help with what is causing this?|

The way that the article is written, I would interpret it as either 1 tablespoon of iron chelate or 1 tablespoon of CSM+B.
If you want to dose both, then you can add one of each.

Question: when mixing the CSM+B and Iron do I use 1 Tbsp of each or 2 of each I'm mixing with 500ml h20.?

Of course, as with any fertilization regimen, it only serves as a basis for dosing, and you can always tweak them to suit your needs.

OK so I've read lots here and am planning on ordering all my ferts from GLA in the next couple days. My question before I do so is whether this is a world class planted tank fert regimen or just a 'pretty good but you've got a lot to learn' regimen. I reckon sinced I'm getting my new light next week and will add pressurized co2 shortly thereafter (currently on DIY) I will take the 3rd step toward a very heavily planted tank and fertilize properly.
This is what I plan on for my 25T under a dual T5HO 24" and 30ppm co2.
50% H20 change-weekly
1/4 Tsp-KN03 3x a week
1/16 Tsp-KH2P04 3x aweek
1/2 Tsp-GH booster once a week
5ml or 1/16Tsp-Trace 3x a week
1-2ml-Fe/Iron 3x a week

When dosing the GH booster or Baking Soda 1x a week/water change am I aiming for a range of 120-180ppm or something depending on the tank size, how many plants etc?
