Default Re: Seachem Dosing Calculator/Chart

The dosing chart is what is recommended by Seachem but it isn't necessarily appropriate for all circumstances. I actually use yeast-generated CO2 injection on two tanks that I also dose with Excel although with a pressurized CO2 system that probably wouldn't be needed. I only use a third of the recommended amount of Flourish in tanks planted only with Anubias since they require much less nutrients. I also do a 20% to 25% PWC every weekend. Basically I suggest you experiment with your tank and check nutrient levels with a test kit. That way you can change as indicated.
