2ml of plantex daily? that is not near enough, despite popular opinions, thats 10+ml a week,, I add 30 to 40ml plantex a week with no ill effects at all, but I also run rich tanks, most people way under dose there tanks, stun the plants or limit the uptake by trying to be so precise on their dosing and algae of whatever form starts to grow. add more KN03,KH2P04, trace
I have 2 tanks from high light to low light with C02, this method works on both of them, dosing based on water volume, amounts may be reduced but not frequency.
I would suggest this on a 30g with 3+wpg planted
use kh/ph/C02 chart and push the C02 on up to 30ppm with 3+wpg
day1) clean glass, prune preen, clean filter, do 50 to 70% water change, add almost 1/2 teaspoon KN03 1/16 teaspoon KH2P04
day2) 8ml trace
day3) 1/3 teaspoon KN03 1/32 teaspoon KH2P04
day4) same as day 2
day5) same as day 3
day6) enjoy tank or water change
day7) same as day 1..(reset start over) I clean my filters every two to three weeks with clean filter floss only.
Estimative way of dosing
