    I add my minerals to my RO water when I do water changes so adding them to your new tap water would be any easy way to do it IMO. You could add them to tank water if you wanted instead though but it's dead simple just to add the right amount to some new water and then tip that into your tank.

    Hi,
    Further to Eds comment, just follow the AE dosing instructions for now; "Dose directly to your tank, 1/8 of a teaspoon per 100L. If you notice deficiencies, add more accordingly".

    Cheers,

    Thanks
    Would that be 1/8 teaspoon once a week after my large 50% water change, or every time i dose my traces?
    Im usein the Ei to dose.


    PS where do i find the AE dosing instructions ? :?
    many thanks
