I bought similar to jason and use flourish for my trace elements as well. A pound of each could last you a long time, up to 5 years maybe.

Can I pay for my Order with a check card? 5 years?? Are you sure? If so, that sounds great to me!

You'd have to ask Greg, he'll answer your questions within less than a minute for sure!

I'm sure if you dose the amount needed it'll last you a long time!

You will need more K2SO4 than anything else.

Dosing 20 ppm a week into a 55 gallon tank will use just about a pound of K2SO4 a year. A pound each of the others will last a right around 2 years minimum.

I knew 5 years was too good to be true....but it would still be worth it..
