    Hi :)

    Not sure how I ended up here, I sort of followed Tom when he left a trail of crumbs I think.

    I hope I end up less confused as to how my plants/tanks have actually managed to survive my ministrations than I am currently but I have that sinking feeling (the lead boots perhaps? ) that I'm going to wish I'd subscribed earlier. Earlier than my latest rather expensive substrate purchase at least - ah well :)

    Hello :)

    Welcome Amaranth. I think that Tom left a trail of dead algae not bread crumbs, also a lot of enlightened individuals. :)

    So where are the Altums in the avatar???:)
    Nice to see you here.

    Oh, you will see and learn a few things if you go through each month's article.
    I'm redoing the EI article and adding more math to it as well as graphs for those that don't get math very well(you know who you are). I prefer graphs as they show a large amount of data in an easier to read and interpt manner.



    Regards,

    I may add a calculator. Know anyone that wants to make one?
    We would reimburse them.

    Thanks,

    Tom,

    Would the calculator be in spreadsheet format or is it more complicated than that? I have done lots of spreadsheets for my business and would feel comfortable doing that. I would probably need to get some help making it have a calculator "look". I would be happy to do it if there isn't someone else who was more qualified. No reimbursement would be necessary unless I hired someone to help with the look. For my part I would do it for the glory of the cause "Death to the algae" (grin).

    Yes, the dead algae hobby has grown.

    I'm looking to do a calculator that does a number of new things.
    Vadf has offered as well.

    I think we may want to do this: work on this as team rather than one person.

    I would like to add a function to the calculator which the others do not have:
    dilutions.

    So if you add 10ppm of NO3 per week(time unit variable and nutrient variable) to a tank that has 50% weekly water changes, this will yeild a mix max range of 10-20ppm etc.


    This function will give you the nutrient range that EI provides in terms of your routine water changes/dosing amounts.

    That would be cool.

    So the output would be 10-20ppm of NO3 no matter what the uptake rate of the plants(....up to 100% of the dosing for the week-10ppm).

    If you targeted 20-40ppm range, that would be safer and dosed 20ppm a week. No uptake is unlikely, but possible.

    So it would be less than 40ppm in all cases almost.

    Perhaps starting with the basics:
    NO3
    K+
    PO4
    CO2-pH/KH

    From various salts would do well as a start. We can always add later to it.

    I want to add many functions to this and am very familar with spread sheets.

    Regards,
    Tom Barr

    Re: Hullo

    Thanks Tom for the welcome, Haven't worked out the Avatar thing yet (regarding gallery suff) plus current pics would show the sad mess that is my new tank of melting plants, I have never failed so spectacularly (I'll blame the extra water depth for now but I am totally responsible for having to act fast in a temperature crisis and made bad decisions regarding flora).
