What is the best way to add NO3. My plants need some. Also, what would be the correct dosing for 20 gallons?

Easiest way? Find the new Seachem Flourish-N. Or order some Yamato Green-N and follow the dosing instructions.

Want to save a few bucks? Buy Potassium Nitrate. Either from or by finding Stump Remover from Home Depot. Either Grant's or Green Light are good brands (anything else, you're on your own).
Here's a website to help you calculate dosage...
