    I it were me then i would be dosing every day, little and often as opposed to one big dose once a week. I understand that some people cant do this though.

    Dan is right in the little and often approach, but with your light levels I dont think it will matter all that much.

    I would go for 4-6ml daily or 30-40ml per week.

    I agree that the T5HOs will give you closer to 2x the actual WPG.

    Don't understand why you are adding extra iron on top of the TPN+ though.

    I'm getting good results dosing TPN+ weekly and Easy Carbo daily but my lighting is higher than yours (2 WPG - so more like 3). I'd suggest daily for the liquid carbon (but it is a pain, I know...).
