If not, then the lower dosing of the ferts might be just right.
DIY co2, 4 - liter bottles, one changed out every week with a ceramic diffuser. Lights; two T8 - 24 inch 6700 K and one 24 inch T5HO 6500K.
36 Gallon tank. It is stocked well. Can the frequency of changing the filter effected water parameters?
