Preparing the fert mix in the 500mL dosing bottles…
The following solution recipe is based on the use of two 500mL bottles. For alternative bottle sizes, please download the PPS-Pro calculator to determine the correct solution recipe. Before starting, we recommend to boil the plastic bottles to sanitize them.
Bottle #1 – use your digital scale to weigh the following ferts, then place dry contents in bottle:
- K2SO4 – 29 grams
- KNO3 – 33 grams
- KH2PO4 – 3 grams
- MgSO4 – 20 grams
Bottle #2 - use your digital scale to weigh the following ferts, then place dry contents in bottle:
- Plantex CSM+B – 40 grams
Fill both bottles with distilled or reverse osmosis (RO) water, up to the 500mL water level line. Screw on caps tightly and shake well. Let the mixture sit over night until dissolved completely.
How to dose the mixture…
The recommended dosing quantity is 1 mL of each bottle per every 10 gallons or 40 litres of aquarium water. Dose daily, prior to your aquarium lights turning on.
