Should I dose iron?
Hey all! I'm relatively new to the planted tank hobby, but I have learned a lot from this forum. I have a few questions though that I haven't been able to find clear answers on.
I have a 36G bowfront and I have been using Tom Barr's low light, non-co2 method. So I have been dosing KNO3, KH2P04, and Seachem Equilibrium weekly according to his instructions. But I've noticed that Equilibrium has only a very small amount of Iron in it. Is that amount of iron really sufficient for the plants? Or should I using something else instead? I'm actually wondering if Equilibrium is really the right product for me for traces. It's mainly used for adding Calcium and Magnesium from what I have read. But I have really hard water out of the tap (KH 8, GH 16, TDS 290). So there is probably already a significant amount of both being added with each water change. Would I be better off just dosing Iron alone? Or is there something better I should use?
