I have a 8' x 3' x 3.5' tank ~ 630 gallons with a 120 gallon sump (together holding 600 gallons of water).
A link to my tank journal
Using pressurised CO2 with a reactor, solenoid turned on and off along with the lights.
Water is tap with 300 tds.
The plants are anubias, ferns mostly and moss, water lillies. Have a few plants in my sump refugium too.
Lightning is T5HO. 54Wx6 and 54Wx2 + 39Wx4. Photoperiod is anywhere between 6 to 12 hrs.
Need help with EI dosing for my tank
I'm currently dosing with KNO3, KH2PO4, KCl, MgSO4 and Micro mix since 2 weeks.
Dry dosing with a teaspoon according to the website
I calculated for 1/3rd of my tank size(200 gallons) since I have slow growing plants and low-medium light and since my tank is not heavily planted. And dosing less MgSO4 than recommended since my water is hard.
My current schedule -
Day 1 Sunday - 50% water change and Macros KNO3 2 tsp, KH2PO4 1 tsp, KCl 1 tsp, MgSO4 2 tsp
Mon - 1/2 tsp micro
Tue - macros same as on Sunday
Wed - micros same
Thu - macros
Fri - micros
Sat - rest
Is this fine? Or should I dose lesser?
Can you guys suggest me a schedule with 25% water changes, twice a week maybe?
(25% easier for me.. takes just 15 mins. Have to keep wetting the plants to prevent them from drying out during larger water changes. )
