The question is in the title. I'd like to know some more information about this stuff for a breeding project I've been oh so very slowly planning.

There are several places selling it and similar items...hard to say, I personally do NOT make it, so it's hard for me to know. I suggested a long time ago using a 3:1 ratio for the Ca:Mg and we copied loosely the Seachem Equilibrium.

2:1:1 by volume............K2SO4 : CaSO4 : MgSO4.

You should be able to determine that with a dosing calculator using the Teaspoons which are volume based.
