Diatoms gone... GSA arrives!
Hi all, so the oto and apples snails made quick work of the diatoms but now I see some GSA popping up.
I'm pretty sure that its just because the tank hasn't balanced yet but I don't want to let any algae get out of control. I understand that GSA is usually the result of low phosphates, yes?
If that's the case what's the best method of adding phosphate to the tank... I don't currently have any fish aside from an oto.
What's the best source of phosphate and how do I supplement it? I'm completely new to ferts and since I'm using a soil subtrate I want to keep my dosing to a minimum.
The only thing I'm currently adding is 1 - 1.5mL excel a day.
