Anyone Dosing Dry Ferts (EI) with CPO's?


Hi all. Have have a 55 gal. planted tank that is hooked up to a co2 system and plan on using dry ferts (EI) for the plants - I recently acquired 3 CPOs and want to make sure it is safe to use with them. Anyone have any experience or knowledge about this? Thanks in advance.

I dose the flourish line of frets with mine, they don't seem to care. I also overdose excel and they do just fine

Thanks Edub! I have dry fertilizers that I purchased from Nilocg here on TPT and the suggested does is as follows:

40-60 Gallons
1/2 tsp KNO3 3x a week
1/8 tsp KH2PO4 3x a week
1/8 tsp K2SO4 3x a week
1/8 tsp CSM+B

Just want to be sure that this will be safe for the CPOs.

That will be just fine. I'm dosing EI dry with 3X the KH2PO4 and extra iron. My fish and CPOs do great. My Bolivian rams just had another spawn yesterday.
