Help mixing Iron solution
I got given a one pound bag of chelated iron (EDTA) so I figure I should be using this and not buying pre made mixes. I was just wanting someone to check I have calculated this right.
13% Chelated iron dry mix
0.13g available iron per 1g powder
to make a 10g/L or 10,000mg/L stock solution (same concentration as Seachem Iron for easy dosing calculations) I would need
38.45g chelated iron in 500mL water.
Resulting in a 1% available iron solution or 10,000mg/L.
Have I done this correct would hate to kill all my fish and plants for the sake of a free packet of iron.
