Is this EI plan correct ?

I have a 46 bowfront, and I was trying to figure out my dosing regemin.

heres what Ive figured from another post I looked at ....

day 1- 1/2 tsp KNO3, 1/8 tsp KH2PO4, 1/8 tsp K2SO4
day 2- 10ml trace and 2ml Iron
day 3- 1/2 tsp KNO3, 1/8 tsp KH2PO4, 1/8 tsp K2SO4
day 4- same as 2
day 5- same as 3
day 6- same as 2
day 7- reset

I have a feeling Im wrong, so please correct me if I am!

You are not wrong, perfect for a 46 with good light and heavey plant mass.
Cheers!

It's a bit rich unless you have a lot of light.
Dosing after the water change can be about 1/2 that if you have fish and less than 4w/gal. the day of the water change can have the full dose.
More won't hurt, but it will not help either.

If the tank is very full of plants, high light, no fish, then that's about right.

On a side note, Pearljam11 are you going to any of Pearl Jam's Canadian tour? I live up here and have tickets for Calgary, Saskatoon and Winnipeg. Sounds like they are planning a US tour for next year anyway so if you can't make it up they should be in St Louis in 2006.
