Quick KNO3 question.

I have about 20lbs of Potassium Nitrate - KNO3 and I was wondering if I could use just KNO3 in my 20gal tank with no ill effects? How do I find out how much KNO3 to add and how often?

Download this handy calculator http://www.csd.net/~cgadd/aqua/art_plant_aquacalc.htm (or use the online version) and it will tell you how much to add to get to your favorite level of NO3.
