what to use
Hi all....I have been battling off the worst case of green water you can imagine, so bad i could not see, and did not know if my fish were alive for three weeks, you couldn't even see 1 inch into the water..I started doing small water changes first and when it did not help i did larger changes eventually this killed my pleco(sad cause it was my first fishy pal).So i went and bought a new tank set it all up and used the filter from my paludarium that had already cycled, The substrate is a mix of black eco complete and black flourite, it is heavily planted. All was good-till i see the plants looking like they needed a boost. so i added some fertilizer then BAM 1 week later green water, knowing what was coming, i bought a uv sterilizer off ebay, by the time it got here i was looking into a pee soup tank. The uv filter worked like a charm. This is what i have for fertilizer given to me from a friend.
flourish comprehensive plant sup. 0.07-0.01-0.37
flourish potassium 0-0-5.8
