    I am dosing every 2 days
    Flourish nitrogen = 20ml
    K2S04= 5 Grs (dry)
    KH2P04= 0.2 Grs (dry)
    And Flourish 3ml 2 x a week.

    My aquarium is 40G
    2.5 WPG
    Pressurise CO2

    N03 = 5/10 ppm
    PO4 = 0.5 ppm
    PH = 7
    KH = 12

    Water change 30% weekly.

    Are those dosage all right my nitrate seam very low (might be my test kit) with the quantity of Flourish nitrogen I add. Should I change some thing?

    Thanks.

    Re: dosing fert

    If you're dosing dry ferts, why aren't you dosing KNO3?

    Anyway...according to Seachem you're dosing right. $.02

    Because I am currently living in Cyprus and KN03 can not be send via airmail. I will have to try to find some over here.

    That makes sense.

    As far as the Flourish N goes, you could ask in the seachem section at APC to see if you can go higher or if all of the N is from NO3. It's possible there are other N sources in Flourish that won't register on a nitrate kit.

    From Seachem's website:

    "Because one-half of the nitrogen in Flourish Nitrogen™ is from nitrate you can get a reasonable estimate of nitrogen levels by doubling a nitrate reading"

    This of course assumes that your nitrate test kit is giving correct readings...

    Thank you for the answers.
