need fert regime for 20g shrimp tank

I have all the regular dry ferts. The tank is med to heavy planted. The inhabitants are fry and shrimp. It is high light and co2 injected. How much do you suggest I should dose? Looking to dose a mwf regimen

Sometimes you have to refresh it - or try the mobile version linked on the page (it'll work on your computer). It'll provide specific mg/ml that'll help you determine the amounts.

5ml is about one US teaspoon.
