http://www.seachem.com/Products/prod...hNitrogen.html says this is made with both potassium nitrate and urea, which doesn't contain potassium. The nitrogen is said to be half from each source. With that you could calculate how much potassium is in it.

Under guaranteed analysis it says there is 2% of soluble potash, what does that mean then?

The take home message is that you don't need to add potassium in your tank when you're dosing potassium nitrate and potassium phosphate.

I notice that most water analyses list the elements as "ppm as calcium oxide", or "ppm as soluble potash". I think that is a convention they follow, and it means that it would take that much potash to give you that ppm of potassium. I could be wrong on this, but I do know it doesn't mean that there is any potash in the water.
