    I'm dosing the burr mix in a 55 gallon (45 gallon used for royals butterfly calculator).

    Micros:

    15ml dosing 3x day


    Fe - .15 ppm. 6.55 grams

    Mn - .06 ppm. 1.05 grams

    B - .03 ppm (H3B03). 974 milligrams

    Zn - .042 ppm. 1.05 grams

    Mo - .0015 ppm (NA2Moo4) 22 milligrams

    Cu - .002 ppm. 45 milligrams

    Ni - .0005 ppm 13 milligrams

    Macros 3x week:

    KNO03: 69.44 grams for 7.5ppm
    K2SO4 94.9 grams for 7.5ppm K
    KH2PO4 13.54 grams for 7.5ppm K

    Am I on the right track here? This is also a brand new ADA heavy tank, heavily planted with CO2, 5h light, few days into week one. RO water remineralized with nilocg GH booster and Baking soda. PH 6.5. Any help welcome! Don't want to mess this up from the start:D

    You need to state the container size for micros for anyone to check the math.

    Macros all to be 7.5ppm is a little unusual. Don't know what your thoughts or what you have in mind?

    In most case, those ratios are not linear 1:1.

    My bad, of course. 500ml. I posted this on planted tank as well and burr already replied, but I plan to dose 15ml 3x a day from a 500ml bottle and the below numbers ( xx grams) are how much I plan to put into the bottle to mix with RO water.
