ADA aquasoil breaking down

My ADA AS Malaya has started to break down and become a fine powder. Apart from appearance will it have any other effect on plants?

EI Dosing with RO water

Im dosing EI with RO water and am having algae problems since switching from tap water. I dont dose iron so could that be part of the problem? Co2 and flow seem fine.

I use RO water with Bee Shrimp Mineral GH+ which puts the GH at about 5 and KH at 0. I will definitely do things slowly when I finally get them and I do have my heart set on CRS!

ADA Malaya PH question

I set up my new tank with ADA Malaya Aquasoil and have since heard that it lowers the PH to around 5.5

Has anyone had experience with this and is 5.5 a bit too low for CRS?
