    Hey guys,

    I have the following from Greg Watson "Aquarium Fertilizer.com":

    Iron Chelate 10%
    Plantex CSM+B (Haven't started using this yet...)

    What is the correct way to make stock solutions from these?

    Also, how should I dose them in a 90G fully planted w/ pressurized CO2 & quad T5?

    Regards!

    There's an old iscussion going back 12 years ago on the Krib in PMDD, add the CMS(2 table spoons) and about 1 teaspoon of the 10% Fe to 1 liter.

    Dose like TMG/SeaChem from there.

    Regards,

    so I use both of them together in the 1L then ... ?

    Also,

    I would dose the trace as suggested in EI. Would that work well?

    Yes both, 1 table spoon of each.
    Yes, like the article suggest and tailor to suit.

    I use TMG namely and my own version which is not due for release until I've tested it long enough to know it works well and can make more comments.

    Regards,

    I couldn't find the article so thank you for your response...

    however ...

    you just said tablespoon of each but mention teaspoon in your first post. I made 500ml yesterday this way:

    1 tablespoon CMS
    0.5 teaspoon Iron 10%

    That works right?

    Is there anyway you can link me to the article?

    Thank you!
