If you add enough it will register on your test kit. How large is your tank?
How heavily planted is it?
Initially I added 2 or 3 drops and tested for content. If, after an hour I got no reading, I added 2 more. At some point during this process you will get a reading. After getting a reading of .5 - 1.0 you wait to see how long it takes the plants to use it. You will soon get an idea of what your plants use in a given period of time.
It really depends on the plant load and types of plants, how large a dose should be and how long it will last.
If you are saying that you took a small amount of water and put X amount of drops of Fleet's Enema in it and got no reading there is something wrong with your test kit.
I have a 40 gallon, heavily planted tank. I can test and get no reading....add 7 drops directly to the tank and get just over .5ppm. In that tank it will be gone in 3 days and I'll re-dose. I also have a 55, not as heavily planted. I use 3 drops, twice a week in it to maintain .5ppm.
Very simple.....very easy.
