Ok, I put together the 250 mL. distilled water (thought I should try to do things right) and 14 1/2 tsp. Potassium Sulfate in a measuring cup. I made the dose 15 ppm - came out to 7 teaspoons and I only had a half-teaspoon measuring spoon.<br />
<br />
885&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;590 + 590/2&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<br />
44250&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;885*50&nbsp;&nbsp;&nb sp;&nbsp;<br />
6.91&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;7 tsp. K2SO4&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<br />
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Dose: 5ml (1tsp)&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<br />
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;15 ppm potassium&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<br />
<br />
I put 2.5 ml. in the tank tonight. The fish didn't like it so much. I'm a little surprised because there is still some K2SO4 not dissolved. I put it in the refrigerator.<br />
