    Assuming chelated Fe falls out faster as KH rises, how long will Fe stay available in 0 KH? Is it feasible that one could dose traces once a week?

    Anyone doing it now, and if so, do you see Fe deficiency?

    Thank you.

    Not sure, it will last longer, but how long? It'll still fall out with high O2 etc.
    I know there's a Cu table for alk and the chelator ETDA etc and perhaps other chelators etc.

    For a minute I was thinking about setting up several samples and controls, then waiting 2, 3, 5, and 7 days to titrate and measure Fe. Then that just sounded like way too much trouble :) I'll see search for sheets on different chelators vs. KH before trying this on a real tank. Thanks.
