So I've set up a 3 gallon shrimp tank (no shrimp yet) and will be setting up a 29 gallon tank for tetras and coreys. I've had planted tanks in the past, but never got into dosing ferts.
I won't be injecting CO2 anytime soon, but maybe in the future. So for now, I'm low-tech.
So to get started, I think I've decided on the EI Daily method (PPS-Pro could be a backup, but EI seems better).
My goal is to mix the ferts into a solution and then dose accordingly.
Since my 3 gallon shrimp tank is...well 3 gallons, I want to make sure I can dose an even 1mL of each solution so things don't get complicated. (I'll make some separate solutions for the 29g when it gets set up)
Utilizing Rotala Butterfly this is what I came up with:
(500mL solution, 1mL per dose)
- 24.69 grams KNO3
- 4.07 grams KH2P04
- 33.74 grams of K2SO4
(500ml solution, 1mL per dose)
Any thoughts or recommendations?
