    Hi Professor Greg,

    I have a few things I have wondered about, and with my chops being busted , I went back to basics and led me here.

    That reminded me of a question I had about the dosing, I had always thought there were approximately 5 ml to a teaspoon.

    Your conversion on the Trace elements seems to be based on approximately 60 ml to a teaspoon.

    I took the revising the dosing here.

    General Dosing Guideline for High Light and well planted aquariums.

    10- 20 Gallon Aquariums
    +/- 1/8 tsp KNO3 (N) 3x a week
    +/- 1/32 tsp KH2PO4 (P) 3x a week
    +/- 1/4 tsp GH booster once a week(water change only)
    +/- 1/32 tsp (.16 ml) Trace Elements 3x a week
    50% weekly water change


    20-40 Gallon Aquariums
    +/- ¼ tsp KN03 3x a week
    +/- 1/16 tsp KH2P04 3x a week
    +/- 1/2 tsp GH booster once a week(water change only)
    +/- 1/16 tsp (.3 ml) Trace Elements 3x a week
    50% weekly water change


    40-60 Gallon Aquariums
    +/- 1/2 tsp KN03 3x a week
    +/- 1/8 tsp KH2P04 3x a week
    +/- 3/4 tsp GH booster once a week(water change only)
    +/- 1/8 (.6 ml) Trace Elements 3x a week
    50% weekly water change


    60 – 80 Gallon Aquariums
    +/- 3/4 tsp KN03 3x a week
    +/- 3/16 tsp KH2P04 3x a week
    +/- 1 tsp once a week (water change only)
    +/- ¼ tsp (1.25 ml) Trace 3x a week
    50% weekly water change


    100 - 125 Gallon Aquarium
    +/- 1 1/2 tsp KN03 3x a week
    +/- ½ tsp KH2P04 3x a week
    +/- 1.25 tsp once a week(water change only)
    +/- ½ tsp (2.5 ml) Trace 3x a week
    50% weekly water change

    Example Dosing Regime for 29 Gallon:
    See attached file.

    EI target ranges
    CO2 range 25-35 ppm
    NO3 range 10-30 ppm
    K+ range 10-30 ppm
    PO4 range 1.0-2.0 ppm
    Fe 0.2-0.5ppm or higher
    GH range 1-2 degrees "extra" 17-40 ppm or higher

    Anyway, if it is stupid, be kind and delete this, if not, well...
