I've been using the flourish line for about a year now and in the process of switching to dry dosing. I think I've figured out the mixtures for the N.P. and trace but I have questions for K.
I want to adjust all my mixtures so that I can dose 4 ml of each chemical.
I used chucks calculator to get my numbers
But I'm a little concerned about the numbers that I got for
Potassium. but before I get into that, let me say that I mixed the Potassium and water using the number I got from the calc and then read online that I shouldn't mix it with water. Dry dosing it is easier.
Since it's too late for that now, I'm forced to use the batch I made up.
The problem (I think) is that the calculator says I should mix 15 TBS KS204 to 500 ml of water. So each ml of solution will raise my K by 1.69ppm.
Sticking with my 4 ml dosing target I get 6.76 ppm per dose 3x week for 20.28 ppm per week.
Here's my delema (sp)
15 TBS seems like an awful lot of Potassium for 500 ml of water.
from what I read online 1/4 tsp raises potassium in a 10 gal tank by
16 ppm (or so).
can someone reassure me that I'm not going to seriously overdose my Potassium using this math. this was calculated for a 38 gal tank btw.
