To fert or not to fert
As the title suggests, should I continue adding ferts even with this brown mess? Here’s a little bit of info:
Glosso was growing straight up, so I added another Finnex Planted+ fixture. Day later, diatoms began to proliferate like mad! I’m assuming that this is the result of doubling the PAR coupled with a biologically immature tank (rescaped about two weeks ago and threw out most of the soil). I think the best mode of action is to remove as much as I can and do more water changes WITHOUT adding more ferts. I don’t want my plants to suffer but I think the consequences are marginal. I’d like a second opinion, what are my options here?
