    Hello,

    I'm a beginner, I have an aquarium of 110l (that's 29 gallons) planted and I intend to use the Easy Life fertilization system.

    I have used the tool http://calc.petalphile.com/ for getting my values for estimative index with 30% water change on a daily basis and Sunday 50% for reset.

    Need someone to confirm me that my calculations are correct.

    Easy Life Fosfo - 3 times / week - 11ml
    Easy Life Nitro - 3 times / week - 5 ml
    Easy Life Profito - 3 times / week - 41ml (isn't this kind of a lot? I'm also using JBL Ferrotabs burried in the substrate for the plants that needs Fe supplements). So I'm thinking on reducing a bit the dose of Profito as I don't think it's too good to have a lot of Fe in the water (might get algae problems).

    I'm aiming for at least 20ppm NO3 & K, 2ppm PO4.

    I have attached a pic with the current layout so you have an idea about how planted it is / type of plants, etc.

    Thanks!

    I would just do 2x a week 50%, not 30% daily.

    Then just dose after the water change only 2x a week, that should be fine.

    If you are concerned about cost, that is more an issue, then DIY ferts will be 1000X or more....cheaper.
