Most folks try to run nitrates in the 5-20ppm range
Its tsp, I got the measuring spoons so that's not an issue.

sorry mixed up on tsp with tsb and all that stuff.

I mean tsp.

So, if I have too much nitrates, can I instead of dosing 1/4th tsp, I can do 1/8th? Whats the minimum amount of nitrate I should keep it at?

Thanks folks.
