Dry Ferts

Ok I am going to place an order from Greg and need to confirm that this is what I need for a 55 gallon tank

1lb KNO3
1lb K2SO4
1lb Plantex CSM +B
1lb KH2PO4- I still have some Fleet left or else I would get 2 lbs

Now what would my dosing scheduel be.

Thanks for the help!!!

If you really wanted to double up on anything, it would be the K2SO4. The CSM+B and KH2PO4 will be used the slowest.

FWIF, here's my regimen for my 46g...

Macro days: 1/4 tsp KNO3, 1/3 tsp K2SO4, 1.0 ppm KH2PO4 (via premixed solution), 1/4 MgSO4 (Epson's salt...a recent addition!)
Micro days: 10 ml of CSM+B (1 tsp per 250 ml)

Start dosing macros on waterchange day. Dose each 3x, and skip a day before the next W/C.

Check your tap water before you dump anything in there. If Maryland water is as bad as N. VA then the city adds phosphate buffer. My tap PO4 is close to 5.

Re-boot!

My PO4 is 0 but NO3 is around 5-10 out of the tap.
