If you are talking comprehensive I think most of the EI dosages list the dosage volume.

Yes, you can use Flourish and the amounts to begin with are listed in the EI sticky. A 20-40 gallon gets 5 ml three times per week.

I believe the origin of the mixing directions with CSM+B was to match Flourish's percentages. If the EI dosage amounts would be around 2X what the Flourish recommended doses are, then the EI doses are roughly correct - Flourish doses seem to all be low light dosages.
