My chemist gave me DTPA without any Fe, though I am dosing it as Fe 10% as per the calc. I am dosing as per EI, only Macros and no CSM+B, but instead DTPA.

Can I continue to add the DTPA with the macros or buy some Fe and mix it 10% of the DTPA volume and keep dosing it?

Dtpa

My chemist says ask your forum if DTPA can add Fe sulphate or Fe Chelate, 10% of the DTPA grams, don't know why nobody is answering these days?

Dear Happi,

Yes, as Zorfox said I had got only DTPA, plain DTPA, without iron, and yes I am not adding any traces?

But after going through some other sites I bought Ferric Sulphate and added 1 part Ferric Sulphate to 2 parts DTPA, mixed and boiled it. The water turned yellow and am dosing every alternate day, 30 ml in my 143 Liters tank.

Can I ask someone on this forum if I am dosing the macro correctly as well the DTPA and Fe in the right proportion, since Tom Barr's site does not register me?
