What else are you dosing? If you dont dose anything else other than excel, adding some iron probably isnt going to help anything. If you are dosing a micronutrient then unless you have higher light...

Pps-pro has you dosing 7 days a week so that probably isn't any better of an option. With those plants you could probably get away with dosing ei amount of ferts 1-2x per week.

I'll just take your word for the fact that those numbers are correct(mainly because that is over my head), but you stopped one step too early. How would we mix 1g worth with kno3, k2so4 and kh2po4? ...

No you cant do that. GH is made up of both calcium and magnesium but without specific test kits for each you do not know the amount of each making up your 7dgh.

You are adding too much k2so4, add 25g of k2so4 instead. With that change you will be getting roughly 7.5ppm potassium in each dose which is the suggest amount for ei dosing.

The reason for this...

For pps-pro the suggested dosing is micros and macros 7 days a week. its fine to dose both at the same time, just dose on different sides of the aquarium if you are worried about it.

You are missing the macros there I believe, on a tank that size those ferts are going to get quite expensive, you should look into dry ferts.

Have you had good luck with it? How long have you been using it?
