Hoping to confirm that my dosage is fine as this is the first time I am doing EI dosing.
I have a 26 litres tanks which I estimate is around 20 litres after sand and rocks just to be on the safe side. I have 2 filters running a Aquaclear 20 and a small canister filter thats rated for 20 gallons tanks. So plenty of filtration for my tank as I have a slightly high bioload of fishes.
2 x rummynose
5 x Galaxy
4 x Clown Killifish
1 x Oto
Plants includes 3/4 of the base covered with Java Ferns/Fissidens, 2 x Mini Nanas, 5 x Staurogyne sp, back of tank filled with dwarf hairgrass. I currently have 2 stems of hygrophilla floating as most of my plants are slow growing to ensure algae does not take hold of the tank. Some green spot algae and BGA which has since stop multiplying.
My dosage is Micro on Tues/Thurs/Sun, NPK on Monday/Wed/Fri, water change and rest day on Sat. I add around 0.125 teaspoon of equalibrium to keep my tank GH at around 3/4 as my tap water is rather soft. My target as a start is to get the PPM at around the middle of EI target and go from there.
My 8 weeks mixture for NPK consist of 44ml of Flourish Nitrogen (Not able to get KNO3 in my country), 64ml of Flourish Phosphate, 24ml of Brighty K purchased when I did not know better when I started). I will dose 5.5ml for each of the 1/3/5 dosage.
For Micro, 110ml of distilled water + 6 teaspoon of CaCO3, 1 teaspoon of MgSO4.7H2O + 6ml of floruish complete the 8 weeks solution. 5.1ml per day on 2/4/7.
Did I do my calculations correctly?
My Micro turns out very milky white. So 5.1ml dosage makes my whole tank cloudy and the fishes seems a little stressed. It clears up in about 10-15 mins though. Any other way around this cloudiness or did I make a mistake in my calculations?
