Dry Ferts - How much to get and of what
Yeah, you can dose daily or 7times more once a week. It doesn't matter if you do it every day or forget and then dose what you owe.
No problem if you go on vacations. Just dose more.
I mixed the micros and macros in two 500ml bottles and I keep two small bottles with dropper right by the tank. Seems that I take better care of the tank if I have to do something daily.
EI is an excellent system, I use it when there may be a problem and I want to rule out lack of ferts (law of the minimum). But I think PPSpro is enough for low light nonco2 tanks.
A heavily planted shrimp tank is possible!
