Hey guys,

Thanks for the response. Perhaps I should refine my question then. I am only dosing KH2PO4 to bring up Potassium and Phosphate. The problem is, there is no data anywhere that says a certain PPM is the correct amount in a certain tank size.

With that being said, all I want is healthy green plants with one type of dry ferts. Since its going to be in a shrimp tank I want to keep ferts to a minimal.

So is it safe to assume 0.5ppm being my goal for potassium just about do it for a 20 gallon planted shrimp tank in order to keep plants and shrimps happy at the same time?

Only planning to dose once every 2 weeks.
