I saw that Parker. Kind of rusty looking. I just want the Matheson 3810. You want to buy some of my regulators? I don't know why I buy this many.

stupid question but what is the difference between a center fold tape and one that is not? is it just the 1/2" fold in half? and if so what is the benefit of doing that?

most of the teflon tape we can find are single density, and to center fold it, make it thicker. another benefit is pure cosmetic, a 1/4" wide tape wrap around the threads is better than 1/2" tape, which will leave less tape out in the visible area.

for years of planted tank fish keeping, I feel stupid because just found out the proper fertilizing method.

first of all, most of the aquatic plants absorb the nutrition from the soil, so to target the water dosing fertilizing is on the wrong track, very wrong track even this method does work.
and there is polymer coated fertilizer, granular what we call.
the trick to apply polymer coated fertilizer in the substrate, is the right amount and to further prolong the releasing period of the fertilizer which is 3 month the most under submerged condition.

You just opened a can of worms lol. There is a long list of debates when it comes to ferts. My experience is to experiment and observe. It works for me

I know, but can't keep my mouth shut.
both methods work, but I can't bear with the constantly adjusting water parameters.
and for EI method, I don't against it because its goal is to push the max plant growth with a combination of aspects involved.

I will leave this topic to others, it will be time consuming to debate.
