Help with math/GH Booster

Has anyone ever mixed Seachem Equilibrium or GLA GH Booster in 1000mL of water as they suggest in the directions?

What would be the dosing instructions at that point? Like how much mixture to raise GH by 1 meq and so on?

First of all you remove the liquid solution from the equation and figure out how much of the dry fert is need to get X amount of GH.

So let's say for your tank 1 tsp of GH booster will give 3 GH so if you want 1 GH then 1/3 tsp will give you 1 GH.

Now to mix as a liquid simply compute how much liquid you want to dose. Say you want to dose 100 ml containing 1/3 tsp then 1000 ml should contain 10 * 1/3 tsp which = 3 + 1/3 tsp of the fert in your 1000 ml solution so you will end up with 100 ml solution containing 1/3 tsp of fert.

Smile It Is As PortalMasteryRy Says


As PortalMasteryRy says, it is.

The liter, quart, frankly gallon is simply a way to mix it before adding to the tank.


If your Guru tells you otherwise and you are true believer that is okay I will not argue the point.

I pretty much limit what I say to things that anyone can easily verify from recognized references or by direct observation. If it is my opinion I say so.
