Anyone have any advice or recommendations for a premixed potassium nitrate solution for increasing nitrate in an ulns system?
I'm hesitant to order the powder since this is only a 12g tank. I looked at Seachem Flourish but not sure if the "potassium sulfate" ingredient would work the same.

TIA

I've used flourish before and it works just fine.

If you don't want to be ULNS, then stop doing organic carbon, using GFO or LC. You don't have to add any N.

I use sodium nitrate powder on occasion by diluting into solution and dose 1mL at a time. This helps you get more precise measurements for a smaller tank.

I don't do any of the above.
It's a 12g with just SPS, no fish thus no feeding.

Spectracide Stump Remover. Must be Spectracide brand.

Been dosing my tank with it for a few weeks trying to balance my N and P out. It has raised my N to where I'd like and no ill effects on anything.

What do you have going on in this tank? :rollface:
