greg watson order coming tomorrow... confused
I know that a lot of people ask the same question, and I have tried to search and find the answer to what I am looking for as opposed to beating a dead horse, but I am really intimidated!
I have an order coming in from Greg Watson tomorrow for:
1 Plantex CSM+B plus iron
1 Plantex CSM+B Plus Extra Iron
1 Mono Potassium Phosphate 1 lb.
1 Potassium Sulfate 1 lb.
1 Potassium Nitrate 1 lb.
I am confused as to what I should dose... I know that most people are now dosing the dry, except for the plantex, which is mixed with water and dosed in solution.
Would anyone be willing to give me some advice/point me in the direction fo a page with tips?
I am considering trying to do something along the EI method, simply for the sake of convenience, it's just tough figuring the correct dosage.
Here are tank parameters:
high fishload (10 neons, 6 harlequins, 2 rams, 2 otos, 1 sae, 1 juvenile angel)
moderately planted (soon to be heavily!)
110 watts PC from AHSupply (6700k)
DIY Co2 (2 hagen canisters, one going to ladder, other to the input of my Fluval 204)(soon to upgrade to pressurized)
Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate: 0 (this is from a cheap dip style test kit... probably not accurate enough new kits are in the mail)
Phosphate: ? don't currently have one... are they necessary when dosing phoshpate in this form?
Thanks again for the help.
