Hello everyone. Although I have everything needed for a high tech setup, I ended up with a low tech, low maintenance setup. I'm getting ready to make the switch from the seachem liquids to dry ferts. I'm looking to get KNO3, KH2PO4, K2SO4, CSM+B & Iron Chelate.

My questions are:
1. do my fert choices seem correct? (for low tech, I'm thinking a light/medium dose 1 or 2 times per week. I do a water change about every 2 wks)

2. I want to pre-mix with water. What can I mix together in one bottle?

Consider GH booster instead of KSO4 as KNO4 and K2PO4 have lots of K and you may need the magnesium and calcium GH booster contains.

GH booster is dosed at water changes only so might as well leave it dry. Mix the N and P together in one bottle and mix iron and trace together in another bottle and dose them on different days as phosphate can bind iron.
