	If the analysis given earlier was correct (0.15% nitrate nitrogen),
then the solution contains 0.66% nitrate, or 6600 ppm nitrate.  One 
teaspoon contains 5 mL, so it could increase the nitrate content of
6.6 L of water by 5 ppm.  My 160 L tank would need 24 teaspoons or
120 mL for a 5 ppm nitrate increase.  Are you sure about that analysis?
