Thanks for the responses guys.
Could you pick up some pipettes? A 1mL or 3mL should work out just fine for you. They are quick and easy to use. You can rinse them out with aquarium water after each dose. You can use the same pipette for all your products if you wanted to.
I believe that is what I am currently doing with something like this:
I like that roughly 20 drops equals 1ml.
I think this could be even more convenient:
So I won't mix them - that's fine. I figured once a week I could fill them all individually with the individual nutrient's dose and conditioned water. That way I just empty the test tubes of the nutes I'm dosing that day. I could probably keep the test tubes out of the light if that would make a difference.
I never mixed any of them when I was using them. I wouldn't mix Excel with any of your other Seachem products. Also, some of Seachem's products need to be in an opaque container because light can break them down.
Good to know about mixing Excel with the others.
It would be nice if it was darker, but I wonder if something like this would be practical and opaque enough for each product:
Are you using this
calculator? It is the link at the bottom of the first post.
I actually just saw that today. Great job on that. Currently I am dosing, per Seachem's directions, macros on MWF and comprehensive and iron on TRS. I'm not following their schedule. I'm just spreading out their recommended weekly doses into a MWF/TRS schedule. Do you think following your way is much better than what I am doing now? I'm open to switching it up.
