Dosing boric acid
I have a 63G well planted tank and I'm experiencing some deformation with the new growth leafs. My parameters are kh 6, gh 12, ph 7, light 144W, pressurized Co2. I am fertilizing with Aquamedic Ferreal and Floreal. Because gh is high I doubt there is a problem with calcium, so I focused on boron that could block calcium uptake.
I bought some boric acid that is a powder and my chemistry problem is how much to dose to obtain for example 1 ppm concentration.
