Are we growing plants or raising phish?
Prefer items that do not contain sodium (baking soda)
KH of 2 and even less can be great for many plants.

I'm glad all the Buce roots and such took off well.

If interested in plants PM me!
I'm trimming lots right now and the garden is growing.
Should be setting up the 75 in a little while. May need some more plants.

Ive just been dealing with more algae than normal. Either my EI dosing is too low (Ive been keeping nitrates <10ppm for fish), the CO2 is not what I think, or substrate nutrients are running out.

Was much easier when I was blasting tank with ferts.
