OK, I realize it is rather obnoxious when there are multiple threads on a topic and someone posts a "hhhhhhhhhheeeeeeeellllppp meeeee" thread, but I just cannot confidently figure out what I need to dose my tank.
I have read the stickied threads but I am still uncertain. It's been so very long since I had any kind of chemistry class that I feel very hesitant to try and figure this out myself, and when I went to the online calculators, they would only give me grams for EI dosing and I am reluctant to buy a scale when it seems I see recipes using teaspoons?
I purchased these fertilizers:
- Micros -
- Macros -
- Potassium Nitrate (KNO3) -
- Mono Potassium Phosphate (KH2PO4) -
- Potassium Sulfate (K2SO4) -
I would like to dose these using the EI method with a 50% weekly waterchange. That seems to be the superior method advocated by this forum for those of us who wish to avoid frequent water testing, correct?
I have a 40 gallon tank, moderately planted. It is high light, with DIY CO2 diffused through my HOB filter. (I do plan to upgrade to pressurized in a few months once I get the cashola and figure out what system I need).
Can someone tell me how many teaspoons of each of these fertilizers I should add on dosing days?
