I have a 55 dirted tank capped with Safe-T-sorb. Heavily planted with CO2 solenoid connected to light's timer. Light 4 hours on 3 off rest period and then 4 hours on. 2 T5-HO on back, and a Current marine LED light strip in front.Been using Seachem products but would like to switch over to dry fertilizers to save on costs. Looking at the EI method. Might order them from aquariumfertilizer.com but not sure what I need and don't need. Already have unopened KH2PO4 and CASO4 from a previous used tank I bought.
Thinking I need these
K2SO4 <- maybe?
Probably going to start with this dosage.
40-60 Gallon Aquariums
+/- 1/2 tsp KN03 3x a week
+/- 1/8 tsp KH2P04 3x a week
+/- 3/4 tsp GH booster once a week(water change only)
+/- 1/8 (10ml) Trace Elements 3x a week
50% weekly water change
1/8 tsp K2SO4 <- Do I still need this?
More questions to come. Like what can I add together to use in a dosing pump I used for dosing all in a reef tank. Would like to automate the daily dosing and the water changes.
Here's part of the tank. The other side is a mess.
The algae is from some plants I was given by some members of the local fish club. I'm not having any algae issues and will soon have the old leaves trimmed back to remove the staghorn and BBA. Already increasing PO4 to reduce green spot algae.
