I just started to use dry ferts and still have some questions.
I have an 80g tank and according to the E.I. guide I should be using:
2 1/4 tsp KNO3
3/4 tsp KH2PO4
3/4 tsp CSM-B
for the whole week. My question is why can't I just take my weekly dry amounts and mix them in 1 liter bottles then divide the liter by seven and dose that way. My other question is do I still need or have a reason to use flourish excel with this. I do have pressurized co2.
I mean it seems to me that that is the point right, to keep things simple. Calculating out caps from bottles doesn't sound like my cup of tea but maybe I just think it is more work than it is.
I also don't really want to have bottles of chemicals in my fridge for long periods. I get in enough trouble for all the aquarium related item in the house as it is without having to keep things in the food area.
