Sorry its been so long.
Ive had no success in coming up with a formula. after a good bit of research, boning up on my chemistry, and a lot of pencil lead and eraser leavings. ive come up with nothing. i gave up. ther was definately something that i repeeatedly left out?
no matter, it beat twideling my thumbs.

i did buy a scale at a cooking store and it turned my guesses into very accurate assumptions. for instance, when mixing change water i add 1620g of IO to a ten gallon tank of water and its right on the money every time. every thing i add to my tank other than food i now weigh and record in a log book. it may seem rather anal retentive but now when something goes a bit awry i can honestly know that its not something that i added in excess. i would recomend a scale.

sorry i never came up with an accurate table.

may i have some tabasco sauce with my hat!!!

Want stats on tank? check my profile.

Peppermint Shrimp:
Crush two tbs minced mint leaves (no stems) with the juice of two limes, two tbs of sugar and a shot of light rum. Marinade eight cleaned jumbo shrimp for two hours in fridge or overnight (overnight is best). Skewer and salt shrimp. Broil or grill over medium high heat until shrimp become opaque (apx. two and a half min per side). Serve with black beans cooked with garlic, green onions, bacon and topped with a slice of lime.
