Ferts question on mixed tank
I have what I term a mixed 40 gallon breeder planted tank in that it is dirt based / gravel covered and I use Flourish Excel instead of CO2 but have strong T5HO lights some 10" above the tank. I have been having a green algae problem even though I raised the lights and reduced the amount of time the lights are on.
My question is I am using an EI ferts dosing schedule for no CO2 with a low light tank - dosing Macros once a week, Micros once a week and a 50% water change weekly - is this appropriate for my aquarium. Thanks for any suggestions
