    in the non CO2 methode,it's said:

    While trace mixes can be added, I decided to use SeaChem Equlibrium instead.
    It has Fe and Mn as well as Ca/K/Mg/SO4.
    I will add about 1/4 teaspoon per 20 gal tank once every week or two.
    This greatly enhances the growth of the plants.
    I also will add about 1/8" and 1/32" teaspoon of KNO3 and KH2PO4 respectively once a week or two.


    Do I understain that you add try fertilizer direcly to the tank? I usualy make a solution that I add to the tank but if you tell me that it work as well when you add it dry direcly to the tank, I go the easy way.

    also, how mutch (in g.) would be 1/8" and 1/32" teaspoon?

    thx
