i forgot about the inverts needs for other minerals, and compounds, kinda just like the saltwater invert. needs.

Gun control is hitting what your aiming for...

On a hunch, I contacted SF Brine shrimp. they comfirmed my suspicion; if you feed brine shrimp they will provide trace amounts of Iodine.

On a completely different note, having a SAE and an Amano, the algea kept coming, and the SAE could care less. So I use a tiny pinch of Simazine and Voila. Great plants w/o algae.

So sue me. Natural shmatural. dosing with ferts and CO2 is no better than using algacie.
