The Components 1-2-3 individually?

Reason I ask is because I go though Component #2 way faster than the other Components. I know the components are supposed to be dosed equally, but in my small tank (29 gallons), there is no way I can get this to work out right. For example if I dose #2 (Alk) at the same dose #1 (Cal) my numbers are off. My Alk is sitting at 6.5 dKH and my Cal is sitting at 513 ppm while dosing both at the same rate. I'm sure I'm not alone. It would be nice to be able to buy what I need instead of having to buy all 3 components at the same time.

Something to consider AF.....

Aquaforest sells individual compounds.

Ca plus, MG plus, KH plus.

It it suggested to dose the components 1,2,3 in equal amounts . If you need to supplement some individually until a balance is met then this is what you do. Your three part balling will eventually balance and then you will be able to dose in equal amounts without supplementation. [emoji6]

I'll also encourage you to watch this video. It tells you how to make your own components 1,2,3 and the required amounts of additives.

Problem is, I've been trying to ball for 9 months now, chasing numbers. I can easily make my own Alk, Cal and Mg. I just like the convenience of the ready made components.
