17gallon cube heavily planted
Tropica powder soil
Cycle completed 1 month ago
I had 0 ammonia and Everytime I added ammonia it would go to zero within 24-48hours max
Planted everything last week and 2 days ago Iíve been adding tropica specialized liquid fertilizer half the weekly dosage split everyday and Iím testing 0.25 ammonia on API test kit and itís new test kit I tried another API both shows same.
Is it registering ammonia or could it be ammonium? From the fertilizer? Because on salifert test kit the chart is really bad but showing less then 0.25 since I canít tell color different 0-0.25
oh and the Tropica liquid fertilizer is about 2 years old since itís from my old tank that I use to use
Can liquid fertilizer cause an ammonia spike in tank?
Tropica specializes ferriliser has ammonium inside and itís a heavily planted cycled new tank since a month and half but plants went in last week and I have ammonia 0.25 after adding daily dosage half the dosage
