Question Dosing Dry Ferts

Hey All,
I've just got my first batch of dry ferts and am at a bit of a loss
on how much and how often to dose.My tank is low to medium light and
I'm doing co2.Tank has~25g water.My ferts are
KNO3
KH2PO4
K2SO4
CSM+B
Iron Chelate 10%
I think I'll need to do at least a 50% water change every week
Cheers

With low light you can probably get away with 1/4 the listed amounts. Also depends on how heavily your tank is planted.

Go to green leaf aquariums.com . click on ferts. They have a section that tells you in detail how , when and how much of each to dose.

Try any of those methods for a couple of weeks. See how the plants respond. Alter the recipe as needed.

Thanks for the info,there's some good resourses out there.I'll dose macros and micros on alternating days and do a 50% water change at the end of the week.I'll start by under dosing my tank and see where it goes from there.Thanks again.
Cheers
