Seachem recommend 5ml for every 200L so far the most I have dosed in a week has been 6ml on different days. Is it wise to split the recommended dosage over a week and still keep the red plants red?
UV causes iron to precipitate out of the water, causing cloudiness. I have had it happen a couple times when running my U.V. filter.
