Hi Everyone,
First off...maybe I'm misinterpreting something...but from what I can tell, in regards to selecting Seachem products, the results don't always match up with those provided by the Seachem Dosing calculator that is available from their site.

For example, the Fertilator indicates for a 12 US gallon tank, 5mL of Fourish Nitrogen would result in 7.26ppm of NO3.

On the Seachem dosing calculator with the same volume (12 US gallons), entering current Nitrogen at 0ppm and target level of 7.26ppm would require 21.8 mL of product.

5mL verses 21.8mL is quite a difference. Can someone shed some light on why these values are so different?

Thank you for the warm welcome!

Well that explains it! I use the mobile app of their calc and never noticed that "i" at the bottom for additional information. I had a feeling I was missing something because other values did match up on both calculators.

Thank you for the clarification.
