    Agree, if you just want trace elements in the liquid form then get TPN and not TPN+, unless you not dosing anything else then TPN+ is the ideal all in one solution if you don't want to make your own.

    to be honest I do not know how to make my own solution

    for now I dose 3x a week
    12.5g a MgSO4
    5.5g a KNO3
    2.5g a KH2PO4

    10ml easy carbo + pressure bottle and seachem flourish 3ml a day and I have to say not the best results as I have hair algae

    Recommend amounts for 370l tank are:

    6.3g of KNO3
    2.89g of K2S04
    1.78g of KH2P04
    16.33g of MgS04

    and

    1.1g of Trace

    All 3 times a week.

    But this also depends on how much light you have in the tank and if you CO2 is up to scratch.

    Hair algae depending on which type can be caused by a few factors, mostly is lack of CO2, lack of nutrients and poor flow.

    I have 2 filters ex1200 and rena xp3 also koralia nano for diffusing CO2 I will replace a koralia soon for bigger one but not sure which one will be good for my tank size

    my light is 2 x 150w for now just 6 hours a day as I try to fight with hair algae

    Co2 1 bubble per second and 10-15ml a easy carbo a day

    can I dose just MgSO4 like source of SO4 without K2SO4??
