When doing EI we have our 3 ferts.
Macros: Mon-Wed-Fri
Micros: Tues-Thurs-Sat

When using a peristaltic pump to auto dose all three (all seperate containers)...

Do we reconfigure the dosing so that all ferts are dosed every day? as far apart as possible??

I thought there was a reaction when two of them mixxed or something....something bad.

I could also aquire 7 day timers and Keep the EI schedule... Which is 'best' for the aquarium?

When the micros are mixed with the potassium phosphate, there is a chance that it will precipitate out. As a result, it is inadvisable to store the two together in solution.

However, if you are dosing them, there should be no problem, as you would be diluting the two fertilizers into a much larger volume (i.e. your aquarium).
