How much boric acid do you add?  I use just a tiny pinch per 200ml of water 
of the PMDD solution.  Is that too little?  What's the right proportion?

By the way, I have found a nice solution to the problem of my coarse K2S04 
having a hard time dissolving and coming out of solution.  Now I put a half 
teaspoon of this gravel-like K2SO4 in a mesh bag, wrap it up in filter 
floss, and stick it into my filter.  It dissolves slowly and nicely, and is 
gone by the time I clean my filter again (every two weeks).  I didn't use 
to clean my filter so often, but the new Fluval x04 series is just so easy 
to clean that I can't pass it up whenever I do a water change.
