AquaGold EI pack recipe, usage and dosage.
Makes 2 litre macro and 2 litre micro each.
What’s in the pack? How do I make the solution?
There are 4 packets in this kit, 5 pack if you also selected the Fe DTPA along with the EI kit.
3 white powder and 1 green. All three white powder will go together into bottle1 with 2 litre of water
Green powder (Micro) will go into second bottle - bottle2 with 2 litre of water.
The Fe dtpa can be added to a third bottle.
The water used should be ideally RO/ distillled water. If RO water is not available, you can use tap water after boiling and letting it cool before mixing.
Can I make stock solution of 1 litre macro and micro instead of 2 liters?
If two litre bottles are not available you can also make 1 litre stock solution with the same amount of fertilizer. Only that the dosage ml will be half (5ml per 50litre of aquarium water) since the solution is double concentrated.
If RO / distilled water is not feasible, boil tap water and let it cool then you can mix
What is the Dosage ->> EI is Estimative index. So the name suggest it’s based on estimation. Nothing is a hard rule. Everything below is just a guideline. With 2 litre stock solution dosage quantity is 10ml per 50 litre of Aquarium water, for both macro and micro if the Tank is densely planted, else you can reduce the dosage....you can use your judgement. Daily dosing is required alternating between micro and macro
Day1 macro, Day 2 micro, Day3 macro and likewise.....dose after lights off at night.
Fe (if brought) should be dosed daily morning after lights on.
Saturday 35/40% Water change

Storage: Store the bottles in a cool dark place. Away from direct sunlight(below the tank if you have a cabinet), alternatively store in a black coloured bottle. Else it may catch algae.
Apart from this macro and micro you do not need to dose any other kind of fertiliser for your plants. While CO2 is not compulsory, it greatly improves plant health. For best results....It is always recommended to include a pressurised CO2 kit for your planted tank.
