Got my Dry Ferts.... Now what?

Whats up guys,

I got my Dry fertilizers in for my 29 Gallon planted iwugami tank, and im not sure how, when, what to dose.

ive seen this index, but im not sure how it applies to me...



Here are the fertilizers i have:

Plantex CSM+B
Potassium Sulfate K2SO4
Potassium Nitrate KNO3
Potassium Phosphate KH2PO4


How much and on what day do i dose each one of these on a Monday - Sunday week on my heavily planted, high tech, high light 29 gallon tank?

thanks so much for any input!

M/W/F dose KNO3, KH2PO4, and K2SO4
T,TH,Sat dose traces (CSM+B)
Sunday 50% water change
Doesnt exactly have to be in this order, but you want to does macros and micros every other day and not on the same day as each other
I would dose what the chart says for 20-40 gallons and go from there.

I like your tank vlogs, keep it up

if you use an RO unit I'd suggest getting GH Booster as well. I saw that vid yesterday, and your GBA is looking a lot better

I dont have a GH booster or a RO/DI unit, i didnt get a GH booster because my GH is already at like 14°

Since i just added the Blyxa Japonica and i need it to recover from shipping im forced to run the lights, ending my black out period after just one day, but i got a timer and the lights are only on for 6 hours a day right now, hopefully that is enough for the Blyxa to bounce back and still short enough to let the algae die off...
