    Thanks, that worked. It looks like I'll need to add 3.44 grams to a 250mil bottle and dose 5mil to get .05ppm per dose. I'm going to use 250mil because I won't be using that much each week. Do I need to add Ascorbic Acid and Potassium Sorbate in with the DTPA?

    One more thing. The Nilocg.com site said to add 4.3 in 250mil and dose 5mil to get .06ppm

    That's not a big difference, I think I'll go with the Rotala amounts..

    Thanks again!!

    I add about 5 ml distilled vinegar to 500 ML of micro solution. Ascorbic acid will work too but I dont know how much is best
