I think you are in the target area.

KNO3 provides quite a bit of potassium, so the reduced amount of K2SO4 is good.
Monitor the plants and see how they do.
If the NO3 keeps climbing too high in the tank, then reduce the amount of KNO3 in your mix, and add more K2SO4.

Thank you very much :* i did that, i reduced K2SO4 amound after mesuring the K in the other elements .

When it's the best to check NO3 Levels? after 1 week of dosing before WC?
