kno3,phosphate and green water
ok, im fighting with green water again. my nitrates are at 5ppm, phosphate test is .25 mg/l. on chucks calc, he says the target levels are 5 ppm for nitrate. so should i leave the nitrates at 5ppm or raise them to 10ppm? also should i raise the phosphate level up to 1.0 mg/l? if so how much fleet enema should i dose to get to the proper level? my kh is 6, my ph is 6.4, and my gh is 6. should i be adjusting these levels since i have green water? i as dosing flourish every other day, flourish iron twice a week, leafzone once or a week (for potassium). i have held off dosing these since the green water broke out. any suggestions? comments? i am still getting good growth with the stem plants even in green water. help!
