You may find the FertFriend calculator for your Seachem products helpful.

I wrote a MS Excel 2003 based calculator based on Seachem's dosing plan that you may find helpful. It is the attachment at the bottom of the first post.

Pfertz is one pump of nitrogen per 10 gallons of tank water for normal use and one pump is about 1.2mL.

I can give a better breakdown on chemicals when I get home tonight and look at my bottles and notes.
