Default week plants

Wicked1,moving from a 60 gal to a 220 is quite a big move.i think your going to have to start a regular fertilizing program until you get things stable in your new tank.in the meantime i suggest you use excell at recomended dosages until tank has been going for a while,like 4 to 6 weeks.this will keep the algae away until things get going good.for the plant mass i have in a 75 gal i use 1 tsp of so4 per week,and a 1/4 tsp of po4.i change water 50% every week because of my fish load.to start with you have a bit of a challenge going to a 220 gal tank. i envey you. good luck! regards,cornhusker
