Sd760 Played around with doseing. The tank looks great right now. Really have an awesome little forground plant in the crypt. I think its parva? If I'm. Not mistaken. Dropped ph to 6.1 I have 12-16 cherry shrimp 2-3 ottos and 4 amanos and 4 Cory cats.

Sd760 What's up so I need help with my doseing schedule!? What's up lol dosing as directed- potassium, comprehensive supplements

Sd760 I stopped dosingso I could evaluate the algae issue. Increased co2 a little and it's almost gone. Point being I felt like it was important to have a baseline.

I'm no high tech expert, but u should be dosing full EI fertilizer to the plants have the food they need to grow with the amount of CO2 is in the water column. Otherwise the plants will not keep up

Sd760 The return hose is only temporary, I also temporarily put the reactor on the side ofthe tank. This is temp as I will mount it to my tank stand. That's why I left the hose so long LOL an so un-slightly

Sd760 So I dropped my ph. It's 6.5 now. I think I'll see how that does for a week or so. I have alot of algae so I am trying to cut light down. I have a great clean up crew 3-4 Ottos 2 Siamese algae eaters and a bristlenose.

Sd760 Thanks guys. Really am having some issues with algae. Think it might just be everything settling down since I recently had to add a whole new filter and filter media. But I am not going to dose any ferts. Because I have been dosing excel trace and potassium spermatically. So wait it out and then figure out a good fert routine.
