Kno3?

How much nitrate (ppm) a 1/8 tsp kno3 would add to a 17g tank, or is there a chart calculator? This is what I'm dosing but I'm thinking of cutting it in half because before I add it my nitrate is at 10ppm.

Select "my dose" and it lets you use spoon measurements.

Great, I was just looking at a Milligram/ Gram scale. I suppose I can use my smaller teaspoons. Question is, are they accurate, or a scale is much more accurate?

I would not bother with the scales if I did not have one handy. The weight, like a lot of things will vary for a given volume. Much depends on how much moisture the item has.

Thats very true. I was looking at the ferts calculator, can't really make a big mistake even if it wasn't measured accurately using small spoons.

I wish that calculator would display teaspoons along with the current weight results. If you want a list of the teaspoon weights, they are all in the constants file for that calculator.
