    Want to ask for a friend. He insists on calculating everything in grams etc, instead of tsp measurement. Anyway, here's his schedule so far:

    KNo3 KH2Po4 TMG K2So4 MgSO4 Iron Chelate 9%
    M 15 ml. 2.78 g.
    tU 9.78 g. 0.86 g. 8.36 g. 3.56 g,
    W 15 ml. 2.78 g.
    T 9.78 g. 0.86 g. 8.36 g. 3.56 g,
    F 15 ml. 2.78 g.
    S 9.78 g. 0.86 g. 8.36 g. 3.56 g,
    S WaterChange

    Tank is approx. 80G
    Lighting i cannot remember.. about 160W i think.
    Co2 is pressurized.... at least that's the plan.

    I cannot say if this schedule is fair or not, but it seems to be way to much, but the i dont know how much 1g. of Kno3 is in tsp...

    hope this isn't too confusing... ask away, and i shall try to answer...

    Chuck Gadd's dosing calculator page can help:

    1tsp KNO3 ~= 5.6g.

    I hope your friend has a very accurate scale and a lot of time on his hands, otherwise it's a waste of time to try setting the levels that fine :)

    Hey! I thought this was a prestige group! If we start sharing this information with our "friends", pretty soon everyone will be able to grow plants, and the petstores won't have the volume they need to sustain plant sales so they'll stop stocking them, then the wholesale companies will stop stocking them, and next thing you know when we find we really NEED duckweed we'll have to pay $99.00 for a special order of the stuff.

    I might be a little paranoid.. but I think we should keep this stuff secret. Besides.. right now people think I'm really clever.. if they figure out how easy it is, well.. they'll go back to thinking what they used to.
