EI for Low Light/Excel 5.5g?
I just spent the last hour looking for the answer and I'm starting to get frustrated, so I'm just going to ask you guys: How much do I need to add to my low light (~30-40 par) 5.5g that's dosed with excel?
I would like to dose only twice a week (excel every day) and change the water every two weeks. Plant and fish load will be high, but fish load is currently low.
As I understand it, for full EI I would need:
1/32 tsp KNO3
1/128 tsp KH2PO4
1/128 tsp CSM+B
I don't have measuring spoons that small and I'm not about to buy a scale, so I'll have to make a solution. I was hoping to dose the solution with a syringe, but I only have two at the moment, one of which is for the excel. Is it okay to mix the CSM+B in with the KNO3 and the KH2PO4 while I figure something out for the iron? Here's the solution I would make:
4 tsp KNO3 + 1 tsp KH2PO4 + 1 tsp CSM+B in 4 oz water, dose 1 ml twice a week
Would that work?
