Calculator question.

Now that I'm on my new computer and it will actually work the calculator correctly
I am once again trying to learn how to use it so I don't need to ask someone on here to do it for me.
Since I have a 10g tank it gives me answers in mg. I was using both the EI part and the "Results of your dosing" so I could change it to tsp and I just realized that on the
part where it gives you how much to add in mg for the EI ...is that one of your three doses that it gives for the answer ? Or is that the total amount and I would need to break that down into three doses ?

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...

If you use the calculator at rota.la, it tells you how many times a week you should dose the given ammount.
For example, if I want dry dose my 10G tank for Potassium with K2SO4, it gives you 632mg for a concentration of 7.5ppm Potassium. Then it says "Dose these levels 2-4 times a week for EI."

Thanks to all of you. This makes it clear now.
I found that I was only dosing half of what I should be except on iron
and that one is a touch heavy. But I found out by accident that Rotala like iron so it likely isn't high for them.
