This guide is to help those of you who have never used Estimative Index Salts see how you mix the solution and to show how easy it is to switch to EI dosing.

My Macro Mixture:

500ml cooled boiled water
6tsp Potassium Nitrate
2tsp Potassium Phosphate
12tsp Magnesium Sulphate

If you live in a hard water area you can reduce the magnesium sulphate to 6tsp

My Micro Solution:

500ml Cooled Boiled Water
2tsp Chelated Trace
1/2tsp of Ascorbic Acid

Use 10ml per 50ltr water of macro solution on Monday, Wednesday and Friday
Use 10ml per 50ltr water of micro solution on tuesday and thursday

Saturday and sunday are rest days and you should do a 50% water change on one of those days.

You can buy EI Salts from www.aquariumplantfood.co.uk

Here is an EI Calculator to work out what you will need if you want to have the perfect dose for your tank rather than my generic mixture
