What you will need to get started with PPS:

  • our PPS-Pro fertilizer package
  • distilled or RO water
  • a digital scale

Preparing the PPS fertilizer mix in the 500mL bottles:

The following solution recipe is based on the use of two 500mL bottles. Before starting, we recommend to boil the plastic bottles to sanitize them.

Step 1:

Bottle #1 – use your digital scale to weigh the following ferts, then place dry contents in bottle:

  • K2SO4 – 29.3 grams
  • KNO3 – 32.6 grams
  • KH2PO4 – 2.9 grams
  • MgSO4 – 20.2 grams

Step 2:

Bottle #2 – use your digital scale to weigh the following ferts, then place dry contents in bottle:

  • GLA EDTA Micromix – 28.6 grams (Trace Elements (TE) recipe updated 4/11/2016, previous recommendation was 40 grams)

Step 3:

Fill both bottles with distilled or reverse osmosis (RO) water, up to the 500mL water level line. Screw on caps tightly and shake well. Let the mixture sit over night until dissolved completely.

How to dose the PPS mixture:

Bottle #1 Macros: daily dose of 1 mL per every 10 gallons or 40 litres of aquarium water. Dose daily, prior to your aquarium lights turning on.

Bottle #2 Micros: daily dose of 0.5 mL or 10 drops per 10 gallons or 40 litres of aquarium water. Dose daily, prior to your aquarium lights turning on. (updated 7/7/2018, previous dosing recommendation was 0.1mL or 2 drops per 10 gallons)(updated 4/11/2016, previous dosing recommendation was 1 mL per 10 gallons)

(1 ml = 20 drops)

How to do PPS-Pro with water changes:

Dose PPS-Pro Solution #1 and PPS-Pro Solution #2 at the same time daily for a week, then 50% water change.

Low light:

PPS-Pro Solution #1, 0.5ml or 10 drops per 10 gallon or 40L

PPS-Pro Solution #2, 0.25ml or 5 drops per 10 gallon or 40L

Water change 50% once a week

This limits water column nutrient levels to 7 ppm NO3, 0.7 ppm PO4, 9 ppm K, 0.7 ppm Mg, 0.35 ppm Fe(TE).

Medium light:

PPS-Pro Solution #1, 1ml per 10 gallon or 40L 

PPS-Pro Solution #2, 0.5ml per 10 gallon or 40L

Water change 50% once a week

This limits water column nutrient levels to 14 ppm NO3, 1.4 ppm PO4, 18 ppm K, 1.4 ppm Mg, 0.7 ppm Fe(TE).

High light:

PPS-Pro Solution #1, 2ml per 10 gallon or 40L

PPS-Pro Solution #2, 1ml per 10 gallon or 40L

Water change 50% once a week

This limits water column nutrient levels to 28 ppm NO3, 2.8 ppm PO4, 36 ppm K, 2.8 ppm Mg, 1.4 ppm Fe(TE).

(1 ml = 20 drops)

    Perfect

    Posted by Nathan W. on 26th Feb 2021

    I like this dosing system much better than my premixed options. This is much better because you actually know what your dosing, and exactly how much. GLA does a great job with this system. Delivery and packaging was fantastic.

    Why did I wait so long!

    Posted by Arthur Miller on 26th Feb 2020

    I should have started using GLA PPS-Pro years ago. I was sold on buying all in one solutions for ease of use but man did that turn out to be an absolute waste of my money. This PPS-Pro kit will make you several batches of 2x 500ml micro and macro solutions. Did you even look at the price? No brainer folks, you would be foolish to use all in one solutions or a version of store bought premixed solution. You gain nothing from going that route as I have learned the hard way. My tanks look like they are on plant steroids and I took great pleasure selling my clippings to my local club. Winner winner chicken dinner!

    Worth every penny.

    Posted by Greg Minnor on 18th Feb 2020

    I was looking for aquarium fertilizers for my new 75g tank. after going back and forth with options I decided on GLA PPS-Pro system. It arrived quickly and neatly packed. Creating the solutions took a few minutes. I was excited to start dosing so I waited a few months to post this review. Since using PPS-Pro my tank has taken off to a new level. Ive sold most of my clippings already to friends to where my tank is paying me back. What I like most about this system is its affordability and longevity. With one kit you literally make loads of liquid solutions. You can dose both on the same day or opposite days and even adjust your recipe to your tanks precise needs. Im a chemist by nature so I really enjoyed playing around with my dosage levels and watching what plants liked and did not like. The dosing bottles are a breeze to use, just squeeze and pore. They also include a pipette with each bottle for nano tanks which i found neat. I since started a desk top vase to try it out. Overall very happy PPS-Pro, you will be too.

    Saved my tank

    Posted by Stephen Marks on 29th Jan 2020

    This package is by far the smartest dosing system you can buy and it will cost you pennies compared to buying premixed solutions. First, premixed solutions are mostly water. You end up tossing more bottles in the landfill than necessary unless you have a really good recycling program. This kit will allow you to make many batches of 500ml Micro and Macro solutions. This is a totally complete dosing system that has everything you would need. I had no idea what I was doing when I purchased this kit and after mixing my first batch I knew I would never buy premixed solutions ever again. Save your wallet and go with PPS-Pro!

    Highly recommend PPS-Pro

    Posted by Adam Lavine on 27th Jan 2020

    Ok so I was a little unsure of myself when going this route for my tank. Previously all I have been using are all in one fertilizers. They worked ok, but I noticed some issues, a lot actually. One issue off the bat was while my plants were living, none of them were looking nearly as good as members in my local club. I used all the brands of liquid fertilizer all in one solutions. They were extremely costly, thats a huge factor. I dont think they worked nearly as well as GLA PPS-Pro system though. My plants pearl much faster in the morning instead of noon time. My colors re super vibrant and I dont notice any more pinholes in my plant leaves. Besides my plants all looking fantastic now I my wife noticed after only 5 months of using PPS-Pro I dont spend nearly as much as I did when using the premixed liquid solutions. With one kit I cam make several batches of fertilizers. Mixing is super easy and not any different than making your favorite drink. It takes me about 4 minutes to create two bottles of high quality Micro and Macro fertilizers. Im saving loads of money and spending it on plants instead. You absolutely will be thrilled with this kit. Its incredibly inexpensive and you get to reuse the bottles over and over again vs constantly buying bottles you just toss in the trash. With this kit your doing the planet a favor and your aquscape as well. Highly recommend PPS-Pro fertilizers.

    My plants never looked this good!

    Posted by Paul Savios on 22nd Jan 2020

    Last week was my last week dosing all in one liquid solutions. The cost is astronomical in any tank larger than 30g. This PPS kit I can already tell is going to save me loads of money but not only that my plants literally took off after only 5 days of dosing. This kit is far more economical than any premixed liquid solution. I have never seen my plants respond to dosing before like they do with GLA fertilizers. My plants are finally pearling and my glosso has sped up in growth to where I feel a carpet is finally near. GLA ferts are the way to go no doubt about it. Do your tank a favor and go with GLA PPS-Pro. Your tank will be glad you did! :)

    A serious upgrade in plant growth!

    Posted by John on 24th Nov 2019

    Apparently, I’ve just been stumbling along not quite stripping my plants of all their joy and health. Converting my fertilizer routine from dosing liquid fertilizer to using this collection was apparently a game changer for me. About 10 days into the new program, GLA’s pps pro collection and I can practically see my plants growing. Probably 4” of vertical growth on stem plants last week using co2 and good, strong lighting. I’m totally floored by what I’m seeing and I owe it all to the good people at GLA for laying out all the materials and info in one place!
