Safer? No. More likely to be successful? Yes.
As far as figuring out EI, any newbie who posts here usually gets a custom
dosing routine from the man himself or from one of us who uses the system.
There ain't a lot to figure out. Add a spoon of this and a spoon of that
every other day. Add a teaspoon from a bottle on the off days. Change half
the water once a week. I don't think you can come up with a tank size and
light combination that someone hasn't already figured out dosing for. If
cost isn't an issue -- and I have set up tanks for several people for whom
it isn't an issue -- then Seachem is brain dead simple once you have a
monthly dosing chart in your hands.
Having been all over the forums and set up a tank based on the advice
gleaned there and from books, I posted here when I had real problems as a
newbie. I still have the email that Tom sent me off list -- it was about a
page long, containing clear instructions on what to do and why. Within 2
weeks I had plants that were growing well and within 6 weeks that were
flourishing. I also got straightforward advice from many others including
I don't have anything against tabs but they are not necessary unless you
have a memory like mine. In that case using tabs can make for a higher
margin of error if you forget to dose for a "few" days. :)
