How to dose EI?
Sorry if this sounds newbie - indeed I am learning. So I've read through and understand the concepts of EI.
For my aquarium, my dose appears to be :-
10- 20 Gallon Aquariums
+/- 1/8 tsp KN03 (N) 3x a week
+/- 1/32 tsp KH2P04 (P) 3x a week
+/- 1/32 tsp (2ml) Trace Elements 3x a week
50% weekly water change
Its the technical terms that elude me.
KN03 (N) appears to be potassium nitrate
KH2P04 (P) appears to be monopotassium phosphate
Trace Elements - what is that?
I mean do I walk into my LFS and say I want to buy a bottle of KNO3 and KH2P04 and some trace elements? Its quite hilarious to ask the sales assistant such a question.. :P
Can someone point me to the commercial names? Are they like Excel Flourish, or something that I could ask my LFS?
Those who are familiar with EI, hopefully you can shed some light in layman's terms. So sorry for the rather silly questions...
