Looks good. Are all of these tanks running the same dosing schedule? Same amounts etc. I really want to use PPS on my next tank and compare it to my current EI.

Basically yes. After watching essential macronutrient concentrations in several aquariums for a period of time, the consumption rates and ratios were very similar. In these days, I dose the same quantity to all aquariums and monitor only TDS because of its simplicity. Complete fertilizer is dosed daily before lights go on.

If needed, adjustments can be done, less N or more P, … still, the other elements should have the same ratio if possible. For micronutrients I dose 0.05 ppm Fe(TE) daily.
