 Dear  All,
 
 I  have   done  a  bit  of  reading  but  still  confused.  Question  is,  what  should  be  the  weekly  target  (  in  ppm  )  of  each  element  of  Macro  and  micro  fertilizer.  Assuming  a  densely  populated,  high  bright,  CO2  injected  tank.
 
 Thanks  in  advance.

 Got  the  Macro  fertilizer  from  this  thread.
 http://indianaquariumhobbyist.com/community/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=20303&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=pmdd&start=0.
 
 My  tap  water  contains  Calcium  68  mg/l  and  Magnesium  15  mg/l.
 
 But  I  still  need  info  on  Micro  fertilizer.

 [url=rota.la]nutrient  calculator[/url]
 try  this  link.
 
 What  you  should  aim  for  EI  dosing.
 
 As  for  micro  nutrients,  the  only  indicator  available  for  the  normal  hobbyist  is  Fe.  Measuring  each  micro  nutrient  is  best  left  to  experts.  Purely  because  measuring  these  levels  requires  specialized  methods  which  are  not  within  the  bounds  of  an  everyday  hobbyist.  So  getting  the  right  level  of  Fe  is  considered  the  way  for  a  hobbyist.  This  is  keeping  in  mind  you  use  products/raw  materials  that  are  tried  &  tested,  such  as  Plantex  CSM+B  or  some  such.  If  you  venture  to  use  some  other  raw  material  then  the  readings  could  go  awry.
 
 Alternately,  you  could  use  branded  micro  nutrient  products  specifically  for  aquaria.  These  you  can  just  use  as  per  instructions  on  the  package.  Get  proven  brands  such  as  API,  JBL,  ADA  or  any  such.
 
 The  best  place  for  reference  to  fertilization  is  www.barrreport.com  IMO.  There  are  indepth  explanations  &  discussions  on  this  topic.  Do  read  up.

 Thanks  Athreyan,
 
 I  understand  that  testing  tank  parameters  for  Micros  is  not  possible  for  everyday  hobbyist.  It  is  the  very  reason  I  want  to  be  careful  while  dosing.
 
 I  have  already  purchased  the  following,  CuSO4,  MnSo4,  ZnSO4.  
 
 The  following  will  arrive  on  14.12.2013  Fe(  C6  H11  O6  )  and  Na2  Mo  O4  .2H2O.
 
 I  will  add  Borax  (  Di  Sodium  Tetra  Borate)  too.  Decided  not  to  Chelate  as  Fe  is  in  Chelated  form.
 
 Looking  for  weighing  machine  from  jewel  shop.
 
 I  need  to  take  care  in  preparing  the  stock  solution  for  Micros.  The  required  ppm  of  Micros   per  week  will  decide  the  stock  solution  concentration.
 
 So  desperate  for  that  info.
 
 S.Suresh

 Maintain  level  as  follows.
 Nitrate  20  ppm,  Potassium  20  ppm  phosphate  1  ppm.
 For  micro  aim  for  iron  as  .02  ppm.  rest  will  fall  in  place.  
 Go  though  this,  I  have  been  using  it  for  quiet  some  time  now

 Thanks  Sandeep.
 
 Inspiration  was  your  thread  that  you  mentioned.  Just  want  to  know,  how  many  ml  of  your  Micro  Fertilizer  stock  solution  is  required  for  a  100  liter  tank  per  week.  How  do  you  split  your  dosing  through  the  week  (  like  daily  or  thrice  a  week  )
 
 Sorry  if  I  am  testing  your  patience  Sandeep.  I  reframed  the  question  the  way  that  I  can  understand.

 Show  us  your  tank   Smile  .....Yes  agreed...Proven  brands  are  ok,   we  have  an  alternative  comming  soon.
 
 but  most  probably  we  will  break  the  tradition  of  branded  and  will  bring  the  home  mixture  soon.  I  found  1  simple  product  which  turned  out  very  heavy  as  its  for  terrestrial   plants.  However  after  reducing  its  potency  is  working  for  pla  nted  tank.  the  affordability  is  tremendous  Very Happy
