Hi @burr740, it's time for me to prepare another batch of micros and was wondering what your latest recipe is?


Thanks

Here's the recipe per dose. Full strength adds .15 ppm Fe and then everything else you see. Ive been dosing around .12 3x week in most tanks, a couple are getting .1

Fe DTPA - .1
Fe Gluc- .05
Mn - .045
B - .037
Zn - .035
Cu - .0025
Mo - .0013
Ni - .0003

Current macros are 21/6/25 per week, divided in three equal doses.

I stopped adding urea and NH4 about a month ago. Long story but its all from KNO3 now

Im starting to hash out a plan for the Dutch. Will post an update soon

Interesting most of your micro numbers are a little lower than what we discussed 2-3 years ago :-) At least I am close. Still zeroing in on what macro levels work in my tank.

Thanks, very similar to your old 13.15 recipe I've been using for the last year


I see you're adding Fe Gluc in your micros recipe - what is your experience with it and what are the benefits?

It seems like with gluc in the mix it doesnt take as much Fe overall to keep things happy. But I havent tested it closely enough to say for sure that its more efficient. It just...seems to work a little better
