I don't have the exact numbers right now, but I made a solution for my 30g using standard EI dosing. 30oz, using the 20-40g standard for CSM+B for 1 dose per 1oz (that is, 1oz for micros, 3x per week). In addition, exactly half as much CSM+B for iron.

So, one dose of CSM+B, half that much of iron chelate, mixed with water, to equal 1oz., good for a 20-40g tank.

In a 30oz container, I have 30 doses of CSM+B and iron chelate (at 1/2 CSM+B). I used this concentration because the same concentration of macros per 1oz. approached max solubility. Micros could probably be more concentrated.

Oh yeah. The micro solution isn't remotely near max. The amount is limited by the macro solution, because I wanted 1oz/1oz.

Use hot tap water, it'll dissolve real well and stay in solution thereafter.

If you're using RO/DI water, microwave it to make it hot/warm...

If you lack RO/DI and have harder tap, then add 5% distilled Vinegar, shake good and wait 203 minutes, then add the CMS. Say 50mls in 500mls of tap water.
