EI Dry Dosing and Flourish Iron
The following is what I am dosing on my 75g tank:
50% H20 change-weekly
3/4 Tsp-KN03 3x a week
3/16 Tsp-KH2P04 3x a week
3/16Tsp-Trace 3x a week
Pressurized CO2 30ppm
I also use flourish root tabs for most of the plants.
3.4wpg total of CF, 8hrs of photo time. The first 3hrs with just 2 65watt bulbs on, 2 hrs with all 4 bulbs on and the last 3hrs with just 2 bulbs on.
The plants in my tank that should be red/purple/pink ect.... are not showing their colors. I have a bottle of Flourish Iron that I got for free... I have read that dosing more Iron can bring out the colors more. I have been reading and reading and trying to figure this out. I'm sure I am missing something here. I can't really give you much more on the parameters besides Temp is 80,PH6.8, KH4.... I don't do much testing..... Hence the EI method. ($$$ for all the kits also)
Question is; Does anyone think that adding Flourish Iron to my dosing regime will bring out more color? Any advice on this would be great. Even if it's "up the photo time" "up the (blast) photo time", etc..
