    Do I need to dose K2SO4 if I am dosing KNO3 and KH2PO4.?? Will I get enough K from the other two? Thanks, Jeremy

    K2SO4 is often used as a substitute for KNO3, since fish (and other critter) waste often adds enough NO3. That way you get the required K without adding more unneeded NO3. Yes, if you are dosing correctly, you will get plenty of K from the 2 ferts you are dosing.

    If you have a high fish load you may want to consider using K2SO4 ... I actually use a combination of K2SO4 and KNO3.
