    Well I doed my tank for the first time. In a tumbler filled with water I added, 10 ml flourish, 1/2 tsp Greg Watson GH builder, 1/2 tsp kno3, 1/8 tsp kh2po4. Suddenly the water started to froth. Some sort of chemical reaction occured. I poured the liquid into the tank. I ended up with alot of precip.
    So I redosed the tank, using one fert at a time. Used half as much.

    Do not add Flourish and PO4 together.

    Add them seperately.

    At high concentrations, you will get a vigorous preciptation.

    Harder water will also encourage this.
