    Hello all!

    For my tank, it is recommended that I dose 3/4 tsp KNO3, however the levels 0 out too fast, so I find myself dosing 1.25 tsp to keep Nitrate detectable.

    The recommended quantity of P04 is fine for my aquarium, probably because I overfeed my discus.

    Should I also dose that much more CSM+B? IE 1/2 tsp instead of 1/4 based on the idea that if I am consuming Nitrate than I am likely consuming the companion quantity of trace as well?

    Thank you!

    Yes, I would raise the trace, really everything; EI is after all “estimative index” and from what I have seen is for moderate growth range.
