    Hiii guys, i using bro shadow blog calculater to premix the "N" fertilizer for EI dosing. Not sure am i interperting the result correctly a not.

    130g of calcium nitrate mix with1000ml of water for 50gallon of tank will give me 1ml of stock solution =0.36ppm nitrate.

    so if i want to achieve 36ppm, i need to dose 100ml of the solution weekly. Am i right?

    will adding calcium nitrate build up the water hardness?

    Yes, but not much. The ratio around 1:4, between calcium and nitrate
