New 20G Planted tank, fertilizer questions
Well after several articles, roaming the forums, and watching countless YouTube videos I have managed to further my knowledge and also refresh my memory on planted aquariums, since I have been on hiatus for a couple years.
I am awaiting on all my supplies to arrive and I’m going to be setting up a Nuvo Black 20. I do not want to run co2 in this tank, I have done it years ago and keeping this tank more low tech is what suits my needs right now.
There has definitely been more research and the amount of products on the market for plants has multiplied.
My question is in relation to some of the supplements I have decided to give a shot in this new tank I’m setting up. I have decided to give Thrive and Excel a shot. I was just curious to hear of some people’s experience using these two products together, if anyone has, and see how it worked out for you. I obviously have an idea in my head for dosing, Thrive 2 times a week with daily or bi-daily doses of Excel. Until I can get the tank running and planted, it’s simply me guesstimating.
For your situational awareness some/all of the plants I plan to use are:
Crypts (undecided on exacts)
The tank specifics are as follows:
Chihiros A series LED A601 (60CM)
ADA Power Sand
Basically just looking to hear of some experiences and even some suggestions. Lighting is sort of a questioned area for me too, as the Chihiros is dimmable, that’s also something I will have to play with, so I’m open to hear on experiences with that as well. I know there are tons of threads all over the internet, I have searched for weeks and read and studied, looking now for more intimate discussion I suppose you could say.
Thanks in advance!
