Dosing KNO3 powder in Planted Aquarium

Hallo peeps,

Does anyone tried to use Potassium Nitrate powder in your planted aquarium? I have 600 liters and a planted one with 8 mature discus.

Thanks,

99% of people dosing nitrate are / have used KNO3 powder or some form of it.

Thanks,
You simply add the proper amount at the appropriate intervals. What that is depends on how much of the other nutrients you're adding, whether or not you're injecting CO2, what size your tank is, how bright your lights are and what you are trying to grow and accomplish and what is already in your tank.

Tell us a little you've done, what you're tank parameters are and what you want to do.
