If you tell us more about the tank such as, size, amount of light, are you dosing co2, then we can help you more. Do you have a digital scale? It makes mixing this much easier.

Which micros are you mixing? If you are mixing k2so4, kh2po4 and kno3 at the full suggested amounts from one of the calculators you will likely have an issue due to too much K.
