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+DTPA 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)

    Just a few days into this PPS dosing deal and I can already see an improvement in some of the plants.

    Wow!

    This was my first go at using PPS system after using off the shelf dosing solutions. I liked the ease of just pumping a few squirts and walking away. However this proved to not be a long term solution. For starters, why buy a single bottle and toss the bottle away when your done? With this kit you can reuse your bottles over and over. You can create many mix's with just one kit... Your saving the planet by using this system. Do you loose anything by not using off the shelf stuff? Answer, absolutely not. Its simple, look what this kit cost and conisder what you pay for that off the shelf premix. No brainer people. Its as easy as making waffles. My 2 tanks I use this system on are very happy and growth is phenomenal. I only wish I went this route years ago.

    Wonderfull fertilizer kit using DTPA/EDTA Micros, nobody else is doing this. GLA is always stepping it up with new new. This single kit I suspect will last me many years of use.
