Default Re: Seachem Dosing Calculator/Chart

Thanks for posting all of this. I just had one question, which is probably a product of my cro-magnon computational skills.

In your directions for mixing up a batch of KH2P04 equivalent to Seachem Phosphorous, you say to add 3/4 tsp of KH2P04 to 500 ml of distilled water.

I read in a sticky on the Tom Barr forum that Greg Watson's advice for dosing a 60-80 gallon tank with the DI method is to add +/- 3/16 tsp of KH2PO4 3 times a week. That's about 1/2 a tsp of KH2PO4 a week or, according to your formula, about 3/4 of a 500 ml bottle of Seachem Flourish. Is that right?

Thanks,

Mike
