    I am going to get TPN+ and dose daily, 5ml treats 50l of water, so should i dose 5ml a day or 20ml a day?

    George should know, but if it were me on an EI tank I'd dose the full rate i.e. 1ml per 10lt each time. I'm currently double dosing TPN on my nano.

    Really depends on your lighting and CO2 etc.

    In general I would say 2ml per day per 100 Ltrs per 1WPG.

    Therefore in your tank 4ml per day per 1watt.

    By this I mean that higher light will drive the plants harder and use more nutrient requiring higher dosing in the same way that to achieve 30ppm CO2 in a tank takes different bps for everyone as you are aiming to replace what is used and so a tank that uses less reuires less injection to replace than a tank that uses more.
