EI dosing for a 5.5 gallon?

What are the amounts needed? Its not in the sticky for a tank that small.

Are you dosing wet or dry?

Your best bet is to enter 5.5 US gallons and select DYI per Estimative Index on this website: http://calc.petalphile.com/

Dosing dry, and that seems like a good idea

I do .25G KNO3 and .04G Phosphate on one day and one ml of Flourish on the other.

As suggested by nilocq:
Pick one of the others and do the math.

I dissolve a weeks worth in enough water so that I can dose it out to each tank based on the size of the tank.
