Ok, so I have it set to 500mL and 29 gallon tank.
It's telling me to achieve 5ppm of Nitrate, i need to add 27 Tablespoons?? of Potassium Nitrate

3 tablespoons of potassium sulfate

I only bought a pount of each. I think 27 tablespoons is more than a pound, not to mention added to 500ml of water, it'll never mix.

BTW, I am doing this on the advise of Wasserpest in [url=https://www.plantedtank.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5652]THIS[/url} thread here.

ok, so I think I get this, but I wanna make sure I am right.

I changed it to 1ml. So am I correct in thinking that I am going to need to add only .16 teaspoon (a little over 1/8) to the entire tank? And that is all? (of KNO3)
