    Hi Guys I'm new to all this and it has my head spinning so was hoping someone could give me an idea about what to do.

    I have ordered all the ingredients for the All in One solution but don't know how much to use in my tank.

    It is a 48"L tank in wall affair, 18"H x 6"W It has very few hardy community fishes but lots of plants. I'm using 2 x grolux tubes one @ 4ft and the second @ 3ft. Both on about 10 hrs each day and I am using pressurised Co2 which I switch on at the same time as the lighting(Co2 will be on a timer soon...1hr before lights?). I calculated the tank to be 22 gallons?

    I have no idea how much All in One to use and how often. Can anyone help? If you need more info, I will try my best to answer.

    Thanks
    John

    Have a look at the first post, all the calculations are there and easy to follow for any tank size. viewtopic.php?f=20&t=5024

    Thanks LondonDragon but now that I have all my powders, I'm still lost :oops:

    Can anyone do the calculations for me and tell me how much to add to my tank so I don't mess it up? Please.

    I will be dosing 3 times a week with a 50% water change. My pressurised Co2 has been running well and is in the green. I will be making up 500ml at a time using distiled water. I have a dosing bottle that does 10ml shots.

    Thanks
    John

    Well with no help forth coming, I made it up how I thought/understood it should be. I've started dosing so only time will tell and if the fish survive, I can only assume I'm not overdosing, which is a good thing :lol:

    Thanks aaronnorth.

    I was not far out with my measurements but I adjusted it to your mix.

    I had some alge problems but reduced the lighting, increased the co2 and started the dosing. Just over 2 weeks now since and already the alge has all but gone and I have noticed the plants have started to look more lush and sprouting new shoots.

    Looking like I am on the right track.

    Thanks
    John
