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.

Re: Mixing fertilizer

Do not add Flourish and PO4 together.

Add them seperately.

At high concentrations, you will get a vigorous preciptation.

Re: Mixing fertilizer

Harder water will also encourage this.
