Upgraded to Finnex Planted+ pls help w/dosing
I just got my Finnex Planted+ for my aqueon evolve8. It is MUCH brighter then the stock light, so I am a little worried about getting algae.
The tank is 12" tall and my substrate is 3" thick. I've reduced the photo period from 8hrs down to 6hrs. I was dosing Flourish comp. 1x per week, and Flourish excel 2x per week. No injected C02.
Since I've increased the light intensity, shouldn't I have to increase my dosing of ferts?, and if so, what and how often do I increase it to?.
How long should I stick with the 6 hrs photoperiod, before I can increase it back up to 8 hrs.?
