    To be honest I've never even heard of this before. Better do some research.

    I did vitamin C in 2009 , basically its buffered vitamin C , a carbon source. You need to start very slowly and then ramp up as required. There is a calculation based on water volume for your dose.

    For me it resulted in cyno with no significant improvement. Also it made my skimmer go crazy when I put it in. I decided against it , not worth the effort. How some people have had good success with it. On RC look for the name pufferpunk, she has the detailed instructions on it.
