so I picked up a thing of osmocote pot shots today. Seems like a much cheaper and easer way of fertilzing. But the point beiing, I'm looking for some feedack and results from people who have used these.
roughly 3.5 wpg for the lighting. Formerly a light for a reef tank with new bulbs. The java fern and anubs are both attached to driftwood. I was using tetra florapride, but didn't seem to do much. Any suggestions for a good liquid fert? Tank size is 55 gal, so hopefully not something that requires masive amounts per dose.
little to no algae. The water sprite takes the brunt of the light and it diffuses into the tank from there. Plants just seem like they're groing kind of slow. Just started the osmocote today though, so I guess I will have to hurry up and wait to see what happens.
I'm running a twin bulb 96 watt pc flourescent. One bulb is a 7500k daylght, the other a 50/50 actinic and 10000k. Haven't seen any negative effects on plants. In fact everything was growing like crazy for awhile, now it's slowed down considerably.
