Help Tom!

My 75 gallon by my neophyte estimate is planted medium.
I have 4 x 54 watts in T5 lighting. The substrate is eco-complete. The basic water parameters are ph 6.8 (pressurized CO2), 120ppm kH and gh is 180ppm.

What type of ferts and in what quantities would one suggest through Gregg Watson for doing the EI method?

Here's an old post from Wolfenxx that I've saved to dose my tank. I just broke it down to dosing per 10gallons and then multiplied it per 10gallons in my tank:

For a 20gal

Day1) 50% H20 Change, Dose 1/4Tsp KN03 1/16Tsp KH2P04 1/16Tsp K2S04
Day2) Dose trace 5ml & 1ml Iron
Day3) Dose 1/4Tsp KN03 1/16Tsp KH2P04 1/16Tsp K2S04
Day4) same as day2
Day5) same as day3
Day6) same as day2
Day7) Reset and start over

Or

Day1) 50% H20 Change dose 1/2Tsp KN03 1/2Tsp KH2P04 1/2Tsp K2S04
Day2) 10ml Trace & 1ml Iron
Day3)Nothing
Day4) 1/2Tsp KN03 1/2Tsp KH2P04 1/2Tsp K2S04
Day5) 10ml Trace & 1ml Iron
Day6) Nothing
Day7) Reset start over


My plants do GREAT with this..... and when I slack off, it shows!!

30g planted with cories, white clouds, Harlequin Rasboras ,ottos.
10g planted with glowlight tetras and an otto.
Outdoor pond with one common goldfish and comets.

I'd add 1/2 teaspoon of KNO3 3x a week
1/8 teaspoon of KH2PO4 3x a week.
Traces: add 15mls 3x a week
Add a tad more CO2.

Do regular water changes, ideally 50% weekly along with consistent pruning.
