Rex Grigg Dry fert ??

Hello all,
I just received my Dry Ferts from the Rex Grigg website. I have the Fertilizer combo that includes the following 1 lb KNO3, 1 lb K2SO4, lb Plantex CSM+B, KH2PO4.

In my 46g what would you all recomend my dosing regimen to be. I do a 40-50% water change each week, and have yeast generated Co2

Thanks in Advance
Matt

Check the dosing regimen thread under the WATER PARAMETERS section of this forum. You'll have more than enough information there to help you get started.

Rex's website also has some dosing strategies. Most folks on here do the EI method, which with your water change schedule, would suit you just fine.

This dosing regimen comes from: https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/wa...-regimes_.html

40~60gal
50% H2O change-weekly
+/-1/2 Tsp-KN03 3x a week
+/-1/8 Tsp-KH2P04 3x a week
+/-1/8 Tsp-K2S04 3x a week
+/-10 ml or 1/8 Tsp-Trace 3x a week
+/-2-4 ml-Fe/Iron 3x a week

PS: You may think about getting a pressurized CO2 system down the road. You didn't mention how much light that you have now.
