I have heard to dose those in that package plus trace so that's why I was ask about trace. LoL to many things out there need to know what is actual if that makes sense.

Thanks 1077,
Will this dosing regime work?
50% H20 change-weekly
1/4 Tsp-KN03 3x a week
1/16 Tsp-KH2P04 3x aweek
5ml or 1/16Tsp-Trace 3x a week
Optional
1-2ml-Fe/Iron 3x a week
I am guessing the trace here would be CSM+B?

Yes, this would be good.
EI dosing formulas are not carved in stone, and depending on say fish load,,you may find that KNO3 does not need to be as much, but I would start with the formula above for your tank and observe the plant's.
EI dosing ensures that plant's are not nutrient limited which means they can spend their energy on collecting light,CO2.
Light is fairly easy to control ,CO2 is the most difficult in my view to get right/
Good flow throughout the tank for dispersion through out the tank of CO2, and adjusting the CO2 slowly so as not to gas the fish would be my primary concern.

Ok thanks 1077 will start with that regime then. As far as the fish load in that tank. Only have 4 Dwarf Puffers so not that heavy of a load.
