Hello everyone,

I have 2 60 gallon tanks that are planted and I am looking for some help to figure out how to mix everything properly.
I'm getting very confused on how much iron I should be mixing for a 500 ml bottle.
I see several different amounts of dry iron chelate to add.

I would like to simplify this and ask the experts for a 500 ml bottle, how much iron chelate (11%) would you mix with water?

Also, should I be using distilled water for mixing ferts?
Would RO be ok?

I usually use the flourish chemicals, but I wanted to try my luck with dry ferts for a change.

Thanks!

It doesn't matter whether you use tap water, RO water, or distilled water. You will be adding at most a few ounces of that water to your tank when you fertilize. That can't possibly affect the tank.
