Ok who does EI dosing?

I've been hearing alot about this stuff. I looked it up and it seems to be affordable for me. I just don't understand how or what it is lol.
I'm currently just dosing glut daily and have a 135 gal with 6 cfl 6500k 60 watt bulbs in reflectors. Also have no clue where that puts me light wise lol oh and it's a dirted tank with sand cap.

Plants looked better before I yanked them all and did a complete rescape the other day

It's more cost effective than liquid dosing, but about the same as PPS pro (unless you have to buy test kits like phos). It really shines in its simplicity versus other methods, but you really don't miss out on any effectiveness.

Have you read this yet?

I or any other helpful member on this site would be happy to address any questions you have on the matter.
