i think its 281.103 g/mol heptahydrate if am not wrong, they did not provide the chemical formula on ebay, if you got better source of Cobalt please do let me know.

after looking at similar product, it might be CoSO4 7H2O

I use CoSO4 *7H2O, this is the way I do it:
0,05 gram of CoSO4 *7H2O in 500ml of water as stock.
5ml of this in 100l gives Co = 0,001 mg/l

I ad about 0,001 - 0,003 weekly.

yeh i was getting 0.05 with this calc that i was using but not sure if monohydrate, heptahydrate or anhydrous would increase or decrease the ppm levels if i go with 0.05 gram.

If it's hydrated, there's less cobalt per weight so you'd need to add more. I'm still stuck on the math on this one since it's reverse of how I usually calculate things and there are way too many decimals.
