    Hi there
    I hope you don’t mind a PM?
    Please can you confirm for me your calc. Using the API Calcium test kit that you posted 1/12/19?




    I think it's also important to keep your eye on the GH components as you do this: Ca and Mg. I'd get API's Ca test kit and follow these instructions to get a better reading;
    - 20 ml sample water.
    - Add 5 drops of reagent #1.
    - Add 1 drop at a time of reagent #2 and mix.
    - Each drop of reagent #2 = 5ppm calcium.

    Once you know Ca level, you can either calculate Mg level (Mg ppm = (GH ppm – 2.5 x Ca ppm) / 4.1) or get @Zorfox's excellent calculator, which is good in more ways than one.





    I’m not doubting you, it’s just that maths isn’t my strongest suite.
    I keep getting 30ppm, not bad, I know but I’m trying to balance Calcium @ 3/1 with Mg.
    TIA
    Cheers
    Steve

    Thanks for the help with Excel and full tank overdose method, very helpful and it works for me at 1.5ml/Gallon.

    Hi Deanna,

    You suggested that I check out your home page to view your setup with your supplemental red lights. I have not found anything, could you point me in the right direction/show me your setup? Thank you!

    Thanks! I'll still update it until I get a cross platform version done.

    That's a good idea about the solubility of the total. I'll look into it.

    Another change I need to make is entering your own fertilizers. This can easily be done now except you have to edit a configuration file.

    Find where you installed the application. In that directory there will be a file named commercial.ini

    Simply add the text below to the commercial.ini file. Restart the application and you'll see the new addition.

    [Tropica Specialised Fertilizer]
    N=1.340
    P=0.100
    K=1.030
    Mg=0.390
    S=0.910
    Z=0.002
    Mo=0.002
    B=0.004
    Fe=0.069
    Cu=0.006
    Cl=0.500
    Manganese=0.039
    density=1
    target=Fe

    [Tropica Premium Fertilizer]
    K=0.800
    Mg=0.390
    S=0.910
    Z=0.002
    Mo=0.002
    B=0.004
    Fe=0.069
    Cu=0.006
