I just began dosing today with KNO3, KCL, Fleets, and Flourish Iron. The tank has been "growing" for nearly six weeks now (2 weeks with current substrate). I have tested only the pH, GH, and KH since planting. Here are the water parameters (all have remained stable since day one)...
Since dosing earlier today after receiving more test kits...
NO2 - 0
NO3 - 1
(Fe, PO4, NH3, NH4, NO2, NO3, were all 0 yesterday)
I'm using Chuck's Planted Aquarium Calculator to figure dosing...except for the fleets. I dosed close to 5 hours ago and my NO3 and PO4 do not seem to be quite right. Should I wait until tomorrow and retest or is it possible that the plants have actually used up what I put in?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
