    I am looking for an EI fertilization schedule for a 29 g tank. Lights 65W/6700K, pressurized CO2.
    Densely planted, medium fish load.
    Tap water: GH=10-12, KH=6-8, pH=7.6-7.8

    Available nutrient sources:
    - KNO3, KH2PO4, K2SO4
    - Plant-Prod Chelated Micronutrient Mix (Fe 7%, B 1.3%, Mn 2%, Zn 0.4%, Cu 0.1%, Mo 0.06%) at 23.81 grams dissolved in 500 ml of water.

    Thanks in advance

    Pretty much the same routine that is listed for the 20 gal (except the 20 has w/2x the light, so the little more volume of tank will not cause any issues for you).

    Thanks Tom!

    Another question regarding traces. Does suggested 5ml of traces 3x/week applies to the mix I listed above?

    I've generally used a 2 table spoon per 500ml water mix with CMS.......

    I do prefer TMG though.
