How do I EI dose flourish for trace

Do I just follow the bottle directions for dosage, and figure the amount for 3x a week?

20-40 gallon tank, co2 pressurized, med light, 2217 filter yadda yadda.

Yes - follow the dosing on the bottle 3x a week on days you are not dosing macros.

It is 1 cap (5 mL) per 60 gal or about 1 mL per 12 gallons.

When doing EI, you should be adding 5 ml 3 times per week of your Flourish.

yup just as the rest said just use the amount presented on the package and do it every other day or on days you don't dose marco's. I use to use it for months and worked great at recommended dosage. I will tell ya you can save a good bit of $ if you make you own with dry mixes like Millers Microplex or CSM+B. But either way will work just fine.
