Not referring to the Regime formula on the sticky...
There is one which gives list for preparing bottles of Macro and Micro
ferts according to tank size. It gives the amounts in grams.
Just been almost a year since I needed it and have forgotten where it is.

Oops, I just found a glitch in my brain.
I just checked my supplies.
There is a container of Iron @ 10% in addition to the container of CSM+B.
I know I added it to the formula the last time, but have forgotten how I
determined how much to use to go/w the 10g tank formula.

Just use a 3:1 ratio of Plantex to DTPA 10% iron. Mix them both in the same bottle.

Add 21.739 grams, which is approximately 5 1/16 teaspoons, of Plantex and
4.732 grams, which is approximately 1 1/8 teaspoons of DTPA 10% iron in the 500 ml bottle. One dose for 10 gallons is 5 ml.

Thanks.
I have no injected CO2 but may start back using Metricide @ 2x the recommended
Excel doses so I've been using 3ml when not using the Excel. I use the 3ml twice a week.
Macro on the day of the water change and the Micro on the next day, then skip a day
and then repeat. That leaves two days as the longest time between dosing in a week
before Sun. when it's water change time again.
