Question Seachem Potassium Crystal Chunks

Is my formula now less potent or diluted when the large chunks start forming on the bottom of the bottle? It is not expired but may be due to the fact I keep all my ferts in the refrigerator?

You may want to add a little white vinegar this will help dissolve the chunks. When I make my micro solution I use 10ml vinegar to 500ml bottle with the dry micros and distilled water. Shake well and let it sit over night. There is nothing to really expire with the fertz.

Sachem uses potassium sulfate in this product it is highly soluble in in water. vinegar works well at getting micros to dissolve but with potassium sulfate ordinary distilled water should work.

I did not know vinegar was okay to introduce to an aquarium? I run for the most part borderline Walstad so I hate to introduce too much of anything because it will stay in there but the ferts themselves are removed in the form of trimming back plant mass.

Sounds like the ratio would be very potent if I dissolved this stuff in a small amount of water.

The amount of vinegar used to help redissolve micros would be only a few drops to a few millilitres, at most. Thea mount thus introduced into the aquarium would be essentially negligible.
