Yeah, I thought I was adding enough because the EI dosing didn't even say the K2So4 was required so I was thinking I was overdosing it with just 1/8 teaspoon in addition to my KN03.

I'm not sure if those PAR levels are a good indication on weather you need to add C02 or add ferts. I've read that even though you have dirted tank you still need to add ferts.

You think so? I thought H2O2 only works when you apply directly to the algae... In my instance and the original post, its everywhere so it would be very difficult to spot treat with H2O2.
