Yeah, it needs some work this winter. I just put it in a shallow bonsai pan a few months ago and it sits at a different angle now so back to the topping and shaping board

Thanks! And be careful, crypts have a collectoritis to them as well as stems.

I see mini keei emerging out of the substrate. Great job!

Yes, all of my tanks are run on PPS-Pro. And loosely at that (sometimes I forget or get lazy or I am just plain too busy )

Sweet, I use PPS-Pro as well!

Do you modify at all, or do you use the standard PPS-Pro mixture?

Everything is finally back on the even keel. I do use a standard PPS-Pro mix other than adding MgSo4 for Macros. For the micros side, I add DTPA Fe, and millers microplex to the CSM+B.

May I ask how much of the Fe you add to your solution? I'm interested in adding it into mine. PM me if you like. Sorry to derail.

It took me a bit but I finally found my solution chart

KN03 65g
K2So4 59g
KH2Po4 6g
MgSo4 41g

CSM+B 80g
10% DTPA40g
MnSo4 12g
Millers 16g

One is micros and one is macros obviously. I add them to 1000ml RO/DI water and I dose 1ml sloution for every 10g of tank water. Haha, lets derail

Awesome! You pretty much dose the same as me, except for the micros.How come you decided to add millers to you mix even though you already have the CSM+B in it? Also, what in particular is the MnSo4 used for? Sorry for all the questions. Running out of solutions and might try something new!

Just by choosing to say you are ignoring my ode to PP shows you are paying attention.

Missed you, Chad!! And thanks for confirming the PPS Pro Solution.

MgSo4 was added after a debate on GDA/GSA saying it was the cause of a Mg defiency and I tried it and it worked so I kept it in the mix. I believe the debate was on Thebarreport. Millers claims to have things in the mix that CSM+B doesnt have and I decided to add it because it was available. Simply put.

Sara, I used to think your poetry was hilarious. Right up until you used the force against me for Awesome ladies points. You just wait, I am getting my pen warmed up now.

Have you been gone so long that you have failed to notice the Awesome ladies disband? LOL.

Nice on the MgSo4. Does it raise your gh much? By the way, can you believe I started dosing?

I havent noticed any unusual spikes to be honest. I use a combination of EI and PPS- Pro I guess. I still do weekly changes (try to) as per EI. I didnt think all of the salts were particularly good for some of the harder to keep shrimp so I switched to PPS over a year ago. But I still do weekly WCs for the shrimps sake. Plus it allows me more breathing room if I dont have the time to change it. I also switched from tap to RO/DI and then back for lack of proper room to do it/RO storage. Now I just top up with RO if they need it. Its been about a year since I researched ferts pretty heavily so alot of the reason for what I do are lost in my brain somewhere. But it seems to be working good
