I´ve been pestered by GSA for a long time, following the advice given here I´ve been dosing po4, which is at 2,5 to 3 consistantly and I have pressurized CO2 @ about 1,5bps. Ph is 6,2 and Kh is 50ppm (co2 =53ppm?)
Should I be adding more po4??
Thank you for your replies, tank is 55g and I´m dosing about 1/8tsp po4 3 times a week. Would it be safe to increase po4 to 1/4 tsp 3 times a week?
I´ll be slowly increasing my co2, how long do I need to wait between increases in the co2
When I decided to raise my CO2 bubble rate and ignore the pH/KH tables I took about a month doing it. I would raise it a bit every two or three days, then watch what was happening in the tank. At that time I was having a hard time keeping BBA from growing on my plants, so I was watching to see if the CO2 was high enough so no more was starting up. Of course I kept an eye on the fish at the same time. I hit the bubble rate where the BBA stopped growing new spots on the plants before the fish ever seemed unhappy so I left the bubble rate alone after that.
