7 hours photo period. CO2 is up so high that i have to move them and the shrimp out.

my IE dosing is:

Monday: 1/2 tsp Plantex CSM+B, 1/4 tsp Mg (ei. MgS04-7H2O)
Tuesday: 1/2 KH2PO4, 1/2 CaNO3
Wednesday: 1/2 tsp Plantex CSM+B, 1/4 tsp Mg
Thursday: 1/2 KH2PO4, 1/2 CaNO3
Friday: 1/2 tsp Plantex CSM+B, 1/4 tsp Mg
Saturday: rest
Sunday: 50% WC, 1 tbsp GH Booster, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 KH2PO4, 1/2 CaNO3

There are 2 types of people on this forum. Those that have algae, and those that lie and say they don't.
