I'm curious what others dosing schedules are like that use www.aquariumfertilizers.com Macro mix and Nutri-trace CSM are like. If you use these ferts, could you please tell me how much you dose/aquarium size/and how often you dose?

Thanks a bunch !

Does no one really use this brand of ferts ?

Most people will follow EI, PPS-Pro or modified versions of either of these regimes.

That's what I'm curious about. Right now I just dose 10ml of each daily before the lights go on and I'm wondering if I should be doing it differently. Oh and 10ml of Seachem iron daily.

I've seen post of how people alternate nutrients but it sounds like they have individual nutrients unlike the all in ones that I have.

Thanks for mentioning the pps-pro method. I've never heard of that before so I googled and it's basically what I've been doing, I think. I have to check to see what my macro mix contains.

Daily dosing gives you better results.

Thanks. I really want to get things right this time. Apparently, we have been doing everything wrong. Lol. So I'm hoping this time we have corrected enough mistakes and went beyond probably what is really needed to just have a pretty growing tank.
