Seachem Dosing Question
Hi Everyone,

I'm a bit confused about fert dosing. I'm using the Seachem Flourish line, right now dosing the following:

Flourish Excel:2 mL/day
Flourish Comprehensive: 1mL /twice a week

Here's my tank specs:

15 Gallon
FugeRay 24" LED (38 PAR)
Fluval Substrate

pH 6.8
Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrate 10-20 ppm
GH 107 ppm
Kh 17 ppm

I just recently upped the comprehensive from .5mL to 1 mL twice a week. Is that enough? What about iron, potassium, phosphorus, and trace? I see these on the shelves at the lfs, but apprehensive to dose and screw things up! I'd love to hear what others are doing with a setup like mine.

Re: Seachem Dosing Question
Did you ever figure out a dosing regime? Just curious as to what other people using seachem line are dosing.
I posted my regime but in think it's a little to lean.

i've been using this:

and slowly increasing the amount of nitrogen and co2 to the tank. I think i am going to end up doing dry ferts and co2, though.

Thanks for the input. I will tweak my dosing and see how it goes.
