Excellent point Edward.
Thread's often describe dosing as per PPS, PPS-PRO,and or EI method. But too often sometimes, the method is a variation rather than as per direction's.
Or maybe they purchase dry fertz for a particular method, and call their routine of dosing EI or PPS .
Need to adopt a method of dosing, whatever method that might be,and follow it.
Folk's can only respond to what is posted as your/my dosing scheme, which help's those who can help,,,identify or eliminate possible contributer's to a problem. (we hope).
Sure, some fertilizer's can be introduced into the glass box of water by other mean's than dosing fertilizer's(can adjust/modify) dosing, but better to follow a consistent dosing scheme than to assume that everyone or every tank can achieve same/same for their application. IMHO
At least until you have a few month's of sustained algae free growth. to make comparison's.
