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 www.litemanu.com 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...
