got some what?

So i got the macro solution set (n,p,k) from Pfertz today and was wondering about few things.

I have 2 tanks with the follow specs.

2.5 gallon
has moss mostly, and red tiger lotus. has TT and fire red shrimp.
no co2 anymore. AS substrate, has 13W desk lamp about 4 inches from surface few hours a day

3.5 gallon
a bit more heavily planted
has anubias nana, dwarf water leaf lettuce, amazon frogbit, some trident java fern, hydrocotyle japan.
no co2, shrimp stratum substrate and 23W light fixture about 5 inches from top of surface, few hours a day.

what is the starting point i can begin dosing?
what are some signs of overdosing i should look for to prevent death in my shrimp and fish, and to watch out for algae outbreaks?

You can actually email that info directly to the pFertz people and they'll give you a starting off point (:
