Thanks for the info, I have been going with total, so that good news

I guess the question about mixing in water is should I mix certain amount of water with certain amount of dry fertilizer to get liquid? Then dose liquid? I guess will dry last as long as liquid say if I mix dry with 1000 ml of water, then figure out how much to dose the tank?

Thanks
