    Made up a liter of Estimative Index macro solution last night using the recipe in this thread:

    For the 25grams of GH builder I used Seachem Equilibrium. Used RODI water too. There is a fair amount of undissolved sediment in the bottom of the jug though and I've been shaking it up since last night. I know that Equlibrium dissolves slowly but will it eventually? Or should I just double the water and adjust my dosing accordingly?

    Gh booster is really tough to get to dissolve, I add it to the tank after the weekly water change and do not add it to the macro solution(you can add a little I suppose, but it's not critical). You can heat it, but that's a PITA.
