No, it is back to the <"powers of 10">. I'm frequently <"lost in them">.The remineralizing wizards seem to be off by a factor of 100.
For example, I have set the water change to be 10L and set the calculator to clone Tetra pH/KH Plus (1dKH)
the results recommend me to doze 0.25g Potassium Carbonate into 10L of water to get 1dKH. Rotala Butterfly recommends that I add ~25g (24.62g actually) to 10L to get 1dKH.
water from the tap is right '
you can use any of the preset regimes egI want to bring my dosing up to say "lean Ei" and create a ml per litre, per day, number that I can then multiply to the tank volume.
Eg. my tanks are 18 and 38 so lets call it 20 and 40 with the filter volume. 40 X x = y Ml per day of Tropica specialised.
The idea of the water report in the CoreSettings sheet is so that one can design a fertilizer in accordance to the tap water you are using in your tank. This basically allows you to customize your fertilizer to your own particular water report. Personally I think the Water Report function of the calculator should only be used if you know for a fact that a specific element is constant throughout the year, else don't use it. Simply create your fertilizer according to your preferred PPM targets in the TargetCalculator sheet.I think I must just be daft, I can't get it to put what I'm after, do I have to put in a water report to get it, because I don't have a water report I can easily lay my hands on.
Do you mean you can't target GH? If that's what you meant then you are right. The calculator at this point of time is not able to target GH directly, only Ca and Mg ppms separately. Maybe, I say maybe, this will come in the future as @Zeus. has been putting some hard work on it but no warranties on when and if it will be released with that feature. Any changes made to the calculator, even the smallest ones, usually requires from my side considerable amount of work due to quadruple checking/code re-writting/formatting/logical flow etc etc as I am very cautious about how the calculators look, its usability and user flow.I started to use this calculator and it’s really great, however I found it difficult in case you want to mix dry nutrients with some branded products.
basically I’m not able to put a data for GH booster. If you take a look on the original Tom Barr’s EI instruction you can add Seachem Equilibrium toghether with dry salts.
"1/4 teaspoon of KNO3 2-3x a week (every other day)
1/16th teaspoon of KH2PO4 2-3x a week (every other day)
Traces added on off days as the macro nutrients, so 3-5x a week, 5mls each time.
SeaChem Equilibrium or GH BOOSTER 1 teaspoon after water change"
Thank you for the awesome calculator. Great job to the member involved it is really easy to use it.
BTW is there a guideline on chloride ppm level? I ordered both KSO4 and KCL to make it more soluble.
Glad to hear.Thank you for the awesome calculator. Great job to the member involved it is really easy to use it.
Well chlorine I would say better to have 0ppm or you risk killing stuff. That's why we treat water coming from tap to neutralize all chlorine. Perhaps you were referring to chloride. I wouldn't get to tied up as @Zeus. said. I will also let the actual chemists answer with more precision.BTW is there a guideline on chloride ppm level?
mixed 3 times ..2 times failed due to urea reacting with potassium chloride, producing some weird suspension. Read it up on some website saying urea is incompatible with it
Make sense that I found technical & technical grade is available here too and the solution of KCl I left overnight the it produces some thin layer of dust sediment on the bottom and becomes very clear. Not the usual thick precipitate. I wonder if I could just filter it out...Two undesirable properties of KCl are: (1) its tendency to cake and (2) dust formation which results from crystal breakage during handling and shipping. Therefore, agricultural grades are usually treated with additives (amines and oils) before shipping to improve their handling characteristics and to reduce caking and dusting (Eatock, 1985). When such additives are not wanted because of specific industrial demands, a drier and closely sized product (special grades) is shipped (UNIDO-IFDC, 1998).
