    Just got my po4 test kit, its 0.. im ordering K2HPo4, confused with dosing.

    Some say to maintain 0.5-1ppm and some say 1-3ppm. However some of the article suggest that 0.1ppm +fish food is consumed daily by plants.

    Im looking for a traget where 90% is consumed and remaining will be removed by 50% wc weekly.

    Also Im confused with rotala calc. As what would be the daily dosage?

    Please help.

    Hey, i got potassium phosphate, using EI daily (rotalabutterfly) still its at 0.25ppm. Wondering if thats ok. However the plants are looking much healthy.

    Tank 150l (105 actual water volume)
    Co2 3bps
    High light using chihiros A601+ highest level, 6hrs daily.

    Dosing tropica premium 2pumps daily (4ml)

    Glad it working for you. I would follow EI and scale up/down as needed.
    Good Luck!
