    How to dose Easy Nitro and Easy Fosfo?

    Thanks aaronnorth! So dosing 5ml of each Easy Nitro and Easy Fosfo once a week should suffice in Low-Light tanks. This gives us 10 ppm of NO3 and 0.5 ppm of PO4, so in a case I use Easy Carbo I could dose twice a week 5ml of each per 50 litres. Or in a case of Hi-light CO2 injected 3x a week...

    How to dose Easy Nitro and Easy Fosfo?

    vauxhallmark wrote; No chemistry guru answered so I'll try and bump this thread in hope one finds it and give us more insight into these new products :mrgreen: I mean 2ppm per week seems a bit too low. How much ppm of NO3 do we get if dosing half a tea spoon of KNO3?? (weekly dosage I use...

    How to dose Easy Nitro and Easy Fosfo?

    Exactly :wink: 2ppm of NO3 or 0.1ppm of PO4 seems way too low IMO! It could be much better dosing 1ml per 50 litres every day to slowly increase the NO3 to about 20ppm and after that dose just once a week to keep the NO3 up. Fish food/waste will also add some PO4 and NO3 so 1ml per 50 lit a...

    How to dose Easy Nitro and Easy Fosfo?

    I just rang my friend that has the bottles of Nitro and Fosfo and it doesn't state nothing about the weekly dosage but our lable is in Swedish language. The English version has the weekly dosage as you stated. Bare with me here :-) So, it is 1ml per 50 litres of both Nitro and Fosfo once a week...

    How to dose Easy Nitro and Easy Fosfo?

    I am trying to find the way how to dose Easy Nitro and Easy Fosfo from Easy Life. They wrote on the bottles; Does this mean I have to dose 1ml per 50 litres of each daily like suggested for EC? Or can I apply the same as Tropica+NP suggests 5ml once a week. I will dose Fosfo and Nitro into...

    easycarbo affecting vallis nana

    Re: easyvarbo affecting vallis nana I also had problems with different specie of Vallisnerias in the past when dosing Easy Carbo, but not any more. Since I started dosing Calcium and Magnesium half a tea spoon per 100 litres weekly my Valls (hard water plant) showed no stress/melting. I dose...

    Why dont nutrients cause algae?

    First of all she uses soils (good CEC) :) and floating plants (less light) and she often uses fast growing plants (Valls, Wisteria, Sprite, Egeria densa, etc) which can keep decent balance if nutrients aren't missing (low light = slow nutrient uptake) But let me quote D. Walstad :wink...

    Why dont nutrients cause algae?

    I fully agree with this statement! Lets mention the non-planted folk which cycles their tanks using the Fishless Cycling method. This method suggests adding NH4 to the tank to start the cycle or formation of nitrifying bacteria (nitrosomonas and nitrospira). Some add inorganic NH4 others organic...
