If you want to start with the EI method, but for low light, I would start by cutting the recipe in half, and you might decide to go with even less.
If you have a good substrate with reasonable CEC it will soak up a certain amount of the excess fertilizer and hold it in reserve.

Might google .."Tom Barr's NON CO2 method"
It work's well for low tech tank's, and adding a little fertilizer once a week or two, is no more difficult than feeding the fish.

|ced281||I'm not a pro at this by any means, but from all the research I've done I don't think fert dosing is necessary for a low maintenance tank (kinda defeats the purpose of keeping it low maintenance). From what I've read and learned, water changes should be enough to refresh many of the micro nutrients.|

dosing low tech tanks?
Most of the info I've found about creating a dosing schedule revolves around the EI method. The EI method, I've read, relies on regular water changes and co2. I'm only running 1.7 and 2 wpg T8 over a 40B and a 50 respectively. Can anybody point me to information on setting up a dosing regime to accomodate a low light, no co2 tank?
