    So for a few years now, I've done quite a bit with root tab fertilization. I've stayed away from producing a column dosing package since E.I. is cheap and relatively easy to do. That said, I've seen that there is a need for a more comprehensive liquid fert, just for the sake of simplicity.

    I've had a lot of luck with a formula that includes a broad macro/micro nutrient mix along with a stabilizer to minimize precipitation. The rough nutrient percentage list is on the label, so no secrets. I call it Plant Candy.

    The dosing is pretty simple, once a week for most tanks, maybe step it up if you are running high tech. I have a high tech 45 cube that is packed with plants and I dose it 2x per week. It comes in a 500ML bottle that has a dosing chamber on it that measures in 1/2 oz increments.

    We have it listed on our site and it should be on eBay/Amazon in the next few days as well. If you are interested, I recommend going through our site since we have a discount for our fishlore friends.

    Just thought I'd share since this is big news, to me at least! :;rocker

    If you don't mind my asking, what's the dosage per gallon? Trying to gauge how long the bottle would last with my tanks. I'm looking for a new all-in-one liquid fert!

    The dosage is approximately .5 oz (15ml) per 30 gallons.

    I'll have to check, but I don't think I can ship overseas because of regulations. I'll look into it though.

    I did some digging and it looks like I can't ship fertilizers out of country legally, unfortunately.

    I admit I giggled at the "and probably tastes like butt" part on the packaging.
