    I would not ask the E.I. Question because many don't use E.I.
    If you want to aks about dosing, I would suggest a open ended question like what is your dosing routine?

    Thanks Raj.

    Yes I agree and will add that, the question about e.i was actually aimed at Tom Barr but adding a dosing question for all is a good idea :)

    This is a great idea.

    I'll throw a couple questions out there;

    In you're opinion. What is the single most important piece of advice you can give someone to help them be successful in this hobby?
    What question do you get asked most often regarding planted tanks, and why do you think that is?

    Can't wait for your first interview, thanks for taking the time to put this all together @Jason.

    Some good news is that I had the honour to interview International speaker and nano fish expert Rachel O'Leary (Msjinkzd) and multiple award winning aquascaper Dave Chow has also agreed to be interviewed in the coming weeks :)

    Once I finalize the interview articles i'll make them public.

    More interviews are on the way ;)
