Dosing

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I just started trying dosing.

I have the A and B solution and a jebao dosing pump.

As a start, how much should I dose?

Pump is asking to input ml, when to dose and frequency.

How much you dose depends on how much the solution A and B is used up 

if your tank inhabitant uses up certain amount of solution A per day then the dosing should be set to dose the same amount throughout the day.

same goes to solution B .

now the question is , how much solution A and B your tank is using per day?

do a test with reliable test kits and find out.

0=500mg/l 0.2=12.5dKH

All too high...how to reduce? Water change?

Personally, 12.5 is higher than normal, but not crazy high to warrant a WC.. If I were in your situation, I'd just stop dosing the alk part & let the system correct itself. Intent here is to minimize further quick KH swings

Both CA and KH also on the high side. 

Please stop dosing and let it deplete by itself.

How is your MG?

MG can be the problem

I think the problem is , you started dosing A and B , without knowing what they were and did not do test to see if you even needed to dose them.
