I would'nt use the calculator as it is there to calculate what is needed for a planted aquarium..what I did was test my nitrates before I started dosing then test 24 hrs after I start dosing. Then bump it up wait 24 hrs test again. ..take it slow as this is potent stuff and will raise your nitrates fast and might cause more harm then good
End results are well worth it though

It says right on the calculator directions:

"Considerations: If using a “nitrate equivalent” value for Current and Desired Nitrogen levels, divide the result by 5."

It works great for me, no difference in testing consistently for desired results.

Well the amazon order is placed. I truly appreciate you guys taking the time to answer me.

Should I stop skimming remove chaeto, gfo, carbon? If i am putting it in they will take it out... It all seems counter intuitive.

The chaeto actually grew more using the flourish ..as far as gfo or carbon I wouldn't know as I never used either of them..I only run my skimmer 3 days a week
