    I’m on my 2nd week of the EI dosing and things are looking better then ever. I would like to write out my schedule and dosing just to get feedback if I am doing it right:

    Tank is 80 Gallons with 368 Watts of NOFL, CO2 is between 25-30ppm, tank is heavily planted:

    Friday – 50% water change
    1 Tspn KNO3
    ½ Tspn K2SO4
    PO4 - 2ml Fleet Enema (This gives 1ppm??)

    Saturday – 10ml TMG

    Sunday – Off

    Monday
    1 Tspn KNO3
    ½ Tspn K2SO4
    PO4 - 2ml Fleet Enema

    Tuesday – 10ml TMG

    Wednesday – Off

    Thursday
    1 Tspn KNO3
    ½ Tspn K2SO4
    PO4 - 2ml Fleet Enema

    Friday – reset and dose.

    I know I’m running short on the TMG dosing as per a 7 day schedule. Can I just increase the TMG to 15ml or simply just eliminate the day off’s?

    I am not adding any extra iron. I have stock of Flourish Iron and Chelated Iron with traces. Can I add iron on top of the TMG?

    I would appreciate suggestions, advise please.

    Thanks in advance.

    Only real changes:
    3/4 of the KNO3 instead of 1 teaspoon.
    15mls 3x a week of the TMG.

    I do not use Fleet enema, but you can ask those that do what the ppm rate will be on the 80 gal(hint convert to liters=> 3.785 liter per gal then see how much the ditultion will be for the Fleet)

    Regards,

    TY Tom

    Sorry for the delayed vote of thanks, I have had surgery and only just came out of the hospital.

    I will do 15ml 3x a week, and reduce the KNO3 as per your suggestion. So far there has been no algae at all. I was wondering if I can forget the days off and reduce the nutrients slighty? I can only do water changes on Fridays preferably.
