OK, on a posting frenzy today :P . I'd like to make a Plantex solution, but I've no idea how much to add to make the solution. Since it's got a bunch of trace nutrients, how does one figure out the correct mix? Let me know, thank you.

One can mix either one or two tablespoons in 500 ml of water. Then dose till either your shrimp die or you get algae problems and cut back.
