Question

Finding nitrate ferts in the UK


Hi folk, I`m having a bit of a nightmare trying to get my hands on some nitrates to dose my tank with. What do you UK guys do to dose nitrates, ie where do you get it from?

Thanks in advance

Dave

While I was in UK, I asked my friend who works in a lab to order KNO3 through his chemical supplier for me. It wasn't that cheap (around 2 quids per 500g) since I had to get lab grade because industrial grade only available in 10 kg or more.

Look through yp and find a chemical supplier near your place.
