Searching, Searching!

I have some leftover Hydroponics ferts and was searching for a use for it. I have a planted 55g with T5 HO lighting, Floromax substrate, and home made C02 with Angels and Otto's.

My plants are growing well but, was looking to add a boost as long as it won't cause issues with the fish.

Is there a post on here that gives amounts of ferts used to make a premixed gallon jug to add for feedings?

Nothing? I have seen post saying you can use it just none with any instructions on how?

I hate to guess with the beautiful Angels, Otto's and Snails in the tank.

Maybe if you can be more specific about the ferts you are talking about someone can help. Are you talking powdered fertilizers or a premixed liquid solution you have? If it's premixed, any link to it or the ingredients of it?
I'm sure if you give that info someone can help you.

If you hate to guess then just buy some aquarium specific ferts. Do the labels on the hydro ferts tell you ppms or any kind of concentrations?

I have General Hydroponics Grow, Micro and Bloom and Humboldt Nutrients Grow, Micro and Bloom.

I don't see PPM on the labels?

I gave indoor winter tomatoes a shot this last winter. The harvest was not worth the electric bill IMO.

Micro is 5-0-1 Grow is 2-1-6 and Bloom 0-5-4 on both brands.
