Advise on fertilizer dosage

I read an article about 3 weeks ago on the exact dosage and fertilizers that i should be using for my 75 gallon tank. It even linked me to the website to buy the fertilizers. Unfortunately i didn't bookmark the page and i can't find it now that my fertilizers finally arrived in the mail.

Can anyone here tell me in tea spoons the dosage of each of these fertilizers and the frequency i should use them per week for a 75 gallon tank.

1. Potassium Nitrate
2. Mono Potassium Phosphate
3. Potassium Sulfate
4. Plantex CSM+B

From what i remember in the article i shouldn't use the CSM+B at the same time as the other ferts.

this link should help you or read the dosing regimes sticky at the top of the water parameters forum on this site...

None of the dosing suggestions can be considered exact measurements though, just starting points, you can fine tune the dosage to your suit your individual tank.
