| | Re: CSM+B Iron dose
Have I made any mistakes in figuring this out?
--CSM+B trace mix solution--
8 fluid ounce bottle, 236 ml of water
Each dose to be 5 ml of the water and CSM mix.
236ml divided by 5 ml equals 47 doses in bottle.
Tank to be dosed holds 5 gallons of water.
1/8 tsp of CSM+B in 5 gallons of water = 1.85 ppm of iron.
Desired iron concentration in 5 gallons is 0.2 ppm of iron
0.125 tsp x 0.2/1.85 = 0.014 tsp of CSM+B per dose
Total CSM+B = 47 x 0.014 = 0.64 tsp of CSM+B (5/8 tsp)
Add 5/8 tsp of CSM+B to 8 fl oz bottle
Fill bottle with tap water, and shake to dissolve.
Dose 5 ml of solution at a time.
My tap water ranges from near zero to .027 ppm iron, so it can be ignored.
