SO LFS guy says "column fert = waste" ??
So I was at the LFS today getting some stuff to replace the plants that I melted with excel in my war on BBA (woot I beat the BBA though.....) so while I was there he asked how I was feeding and I told him that I had root ferts for my vals and my swords and that I was using liquid ferts for the rest and he told me that all of those ferts are a waste and that it was all for algae.....
Now I'm thinking hmmmm hes tryin to sell me something but he didn't....
Correct me if I'm wrong but I was under the assumption that java fern, xmas moss, flame moss, and others feed from the water since there's nothing in the line of a root system there?
My other reason for asking this is I'm getting close to being ready to re-up my ferts here in about a month.
For those of you wondering the last batch I got from colin and I felt that they have done a wonderful job (much better than the leaf zone I was using) I just want to make sure I'm on the right path here with the high tech setup
