Coffee Grounds - Contain about 4% nitrogen, 1% phosphorus, and 3% potassium. You can also dilute your coffee grounds with water. This makes an excellent liquid fertilizer that's completely organic.

could you tell me more about using coffee grounds as liquid fertilizer?
maybe a link?

thanks and good luck

Glad your tank is working out well for the inverts so far. Gonna be funny if the MTS burrows when you're nearby, gas bubble pops at top of water, dog crap smell escapes.

When do you think you'll have to add more nutrients into the soil? Will you just wait for plant growth to begin to slow or would you have an estimate time period.

Fish Shrimp tanks are like cups of coffee, one is never enough.

The problem with feedlot manure is it's more like septage than manure.

Our family has been dumping coffee grounds around rose bushes for three generations.

If you might like my other journal, "Coffee Bowl"
oh my mistake i thought you meant fertiliser for an aquarium.
my mum puts coffee around garden plants too :P

Noticed a few gas bubbles /QUOTE]


Those would be called farts.
We have six dogs here. Think of the size tank I could have!

Can pet manure be sterilized chemically to make it safe?
There are chemical sterilants such as methyl bromide and others that could be used, but the cost and bother is probably not worth the value of the manure. Also, the average homeowner probably is not equipped to handle chemical sterilants. CONCLUSIONS
The health hazards associated with cat and dog manure are greater than the potential benefit from its fertilizer value. Cat and dog manure should be disposed of by flushing down the toilet, burying deep in the soil (six inches or more) or by placement in tight plastic bags for garbage collection.
Be careful with this. It isn't a joke and the appropriate measures should be taken.

Since you're putting this in the substrate then putting your arms in the water(presumably) afterwards, it is a good way to introduce contaminants back to you and your family. I spoke to Emmett Schulte and UW and he confirmed this with me. The dog feces in water will still be dangerous and requires 5 or more days composting over 165 degrees to render it "safe".

I was going to ask if you did a barf diet! Then I finished your post ha ha. My grandpas son had that with his dog ( no not uncle, divorces blah blah...) He had a really expensive dog and when he bought it, that was in the contract for it, that he had to feed her a barf diet.

Be very careful with this tank. It can go anaerobic pretty easily.

Also never touch the substrate or move plants around. NH3 release from the substrate will be bad.
