    I'm new to ferts and would like to feedback on my plan to use Seachem ferts for a 29 gal, well planted in Seachem Flourite, 1 55W CF lamp (AHSupply) HOB 300 g/hr filter, pH 7.2, nearing end of fishless cycle:

    Every 2 weeks

    ~ ¼ teaspoon of Seachem’s Flourish
    ~ ⅛ teaspoon of Potassium (K2O)
    ~ ⅛ teaspoon of Nitrogen that contains K20. Should I not use the more more potent Potassium?
    a dash of Phosphate P2O5 which, also, contains a small % of K20
    15 ml (3 tsp) of Excel initially; 4ml (.8 tsp) thereafter (every 2 weeks)

    Does this sound about right?



    Here is Seachem's lists of contents for each of their products I want to use:

    Total Nitrogen 0.07%
    Available Phosphate ( P2O5) 0.01%
    Soluble Potash 0.37%
    Calcium (Ca) 0.14%
    Magnesium (Mg) 0.11%
    Sulfur (S) 0.2773%
    Boron (B) 0.009%
    Chlorine (Cl) 1.15%
    Cobalt (Co) 0.0004%
    Copper (Cu) 0.0001%
    Iron (Fe) 0.32%
    Manganese (Mn) 0.0118%
    Molybdenum (Mo) 0.0009%
    Sodium (Na) 0.13%
    Zinc (Zn) 0.0007%

    Soluble Potassium (K2O) 5.8%

    Total Nitrogen (N) 1.5%
    Soluble Potash (K2O) 2%

    Total Phosphate (P2O5) 0.3%
    Soluble Potash (K2O) 0.2%
