What are you dosing in your planted tank? Also are you adding it straight to your tank or diluting it and dripping that?

I just miz whatever ferts into my topup water and pour in.
I have stock solutions of KNO3, KH2PO4, K2SO4, PLantex CSM +B. I dose accordingly.
I use Flourish, Fleet enemas, and KNO3. Everything but the KNO3 gets dosed directly into the tank water, the KNO3 I disolve in a cup of tank water first then pour in.
I have stock solutions of PO4 and NO3 which I add according to need. Flourish is added 2x a week, iron daily. I used to add K2SO4, but have stopped.
is the flourish for micronutrients?
Ever tried dissolving much KNO3 in a small container by shaking. It cools and feels cold to the touch.
I have my own KNO3 and i also mix it into a bottle. I have never noticed that it causes the bottle to cool down after putting it mean to say that there's a endothermic reaction going on in there?
I mixed 5ml of KNO3 into 100ml water and shook the container then it became cool. :lol:
if it cools, then that means that there's some kind of reaction going on..what do you think it is?

Look up Seachem stuff for details :idea:

TMG and Flourish are both Micro Mixes.
