 Hi  All,
 I  am  new  to  Planted  tanks.  I  have  been  reading  about  nutrient  dosing,  EI  and  other  regimes.  
 
 Please  advice  what  types  of  dosing  you  are  following  ?,  Where  can  i  find  good  articles  to  read  up?.
 
 FYI  :  Planning  to  set  up  a  180  gallon  planted  tank  with  Co2  and  Medium  light  levels.

 Thanks  Prem,
 I  have  gone  through  this,  I  have  some  doubts  though.
 
 
 Below  are  the  dosing  instructions:-
 100  -  125  Gallon  Aquarium  
 +/-  1  1/2  tsp  KN03  3x  a  week
 +/-  ½  tsp  KH2P04  3x  a  week
 +/-  ½  tsp  (30ml)  Trace  Elements  3x  a  week
 50%  weekly  water  change
 
 Q1)  For  trace  elements,  Do  we  add  Microsol-B  ?
 Q2)  how  would  the  dosing  change  for  a  moderately  lit  tank  ...  Say  2  watts/gallon?
 Q3)  what  substrate  to  go  for?  How  much  ADA  soil  will  be  needed  for  a  6x2x2  setup?

 1.  Yes,  I  use  Microsol-B
 2.  It  depends  on  many  factors,  plants,  light,  etc.  You  can  start  with  half  the  recommended  dosage  and  increase  accordingly.
 3.  You  will  need  113  liters,  close  to  12  or  13  bags  of  ADA  soil.  If  you  can  afford  it  nothing  like  it.

 To  add  on,  go  for  18  inch  or  21  inch  height  tank  so  you  will  be  able  to  grow  some  froground  plants.

 You  can  use  Chuck's  Planted  Aquarium  Calculator  for  calculating  dosage  and  CO2.  The  compounds  referenced  in  the  nutrient  calculator  can  be  obtained  from  any  stores  that  sell  chemicals  to  labs.

 Hey  Sean
 
 KNO3  and  K2SO4  can  be  picked  up  from  Dawa  Bazaar  or  your  local  lab  supplier..  Try  using  justdial.com  for  chemical  suppliers  for  your  local  listings..
 
 MicrosolB  will  be  difficult  to  get  in  Mumbai,  so  far  haven't  got  any  leads  in  Mumbai,  I  got  my  requirement  from  Deepak  Brid  (Aquadeep),  try  contacting  him.
 
 Good  luck
 Harpreet.
