 To  those  who  want  to  know  how  to  make  D  I  Y  Fertilizers  and  the  dosing  pattern.
 
 I  follow  EI  dosing.  I  make  a  stock  solution  of  all  the  ferts  and  dose  them  thrice  a  week  or  depending  on  nutrient  deficiency.  You  could  either  get  lab  grade  chemicals  or  fertilizer  grade  ones.
 
 To  make  the  stock  solutions
 
 K2SO4  stock  solution  =  40  gms  K2SO4  +  500  ml  water
 KNO3  stock  solution  =  40  gms  KNO3  +  500  ml  water
 KH2PO4  stock  solution  =  15  gms  KH2PO4  +  500  ml  water
 Trace  Stock  Solution   =  15  gms  Microsol  B  +  500  ml  water
 
 Dosing
 
 One  ml  of  K2SO4  stock  solution  in  1  gallon  of  water  will  give  you  8.98  ppm  Potassium
 One  ml  KNO3  stock  solution  in  1  Gallon  water  will  give  you  12.26  ppm  Nitrate  and  7.74  ppm  Potassium.
 One  ml  KH2PO4  stock  solution  in  1  Gallon  of  water  will  give  you  5.23  ppm  Phosphate
 I  do  not  know  how  much  Iron  (fe)  is  there  in  500  ml  Microsol  B  solution  however  as  a  thumb  rule  i  add  5  ml  for  every  40  gallons.
 
 Your  weekly  targets  should  be
 
 Potassium  (K)  -   30ppm/  week
 Nitrate  (N)  -   20  ppm/  week
 Phosphate  (P)  -  3  ppm/week
 Iron  (Fe)  -  .5  ppm/week
 
 50%  water  changes  a  week  is  a  must.  
 
 The  parameters  above  are  for  heavily  planted  tank,  for  less  planted  tank  you  could  reduce  the  dosing.
 
 Cheers
 
 Vince

 great  post!  Thanks  ...
 
 So  by  weekly  target  you  mean  we  shouldnt  have  put  in  more  than  30  ppm  of  Potassium
 
 which  would  mean  not  more  than  about  3  doses  and  a  bit  of  the  k2S04  solution..
 
 also  should  i  dose  in  one  go  or  spread  it  across  a  few  days?
 
 Thanks  for  the  info...  will  definitely  use   it

 Hi  Walter,
 
 If  your  water  is  Hard,  then  you  may  need  not  add  MgSO4  separately.  Not  sure  about  this..  Lets  experts  give  their  comments...

 Where  can  one  get  KNO3,  KH2PO4  and  K2SO4  in  Mumbai   /Thane?
 Also  where  to  get  the  micronutrients  -  seachem  or  any  other  brand.
 
 I  tried  calling  up  chemical  delaers  using  justdial  and  other  services  on  the  internet,  but  no  luck  yet.
