How to EI dose a Nano tank?

I have a new 4 gallon(3.7) and with rocks and sand probably 3 gallons.

I want to get my Java fern off to a good start AND want a low tech carpet at some point.

How do you dose for such small qty? Mix with water and use a dropper?

Should I not even worry about it with java fern? But I've heard its an Iron hog?

If you have dry ferts already you could mix into solution.

I think that's the way to go....way to small amount for dry measure!

Yep just use a calculator and make a lean solution. Be sure to make it so that you need to add say at least 10ml per dosing. By doing so you always have the flexibility to dose less nutrients easily without having to make a new solution.
