Thanks for the info. As for the DIY Co2, my tank is on that line of just being too large for an application like that, so I wasn't sure what to do. So you think I should stick with Excel for now? Like most, I am limited monetarily, but I want it done right and am a huge believer in spending more and doing it right initially to avoid issues and spending more money in the future.
As for my light, it is T5 lighting, but it is two 21w bulbs (42w total), and then 6 moonlight LEDs. Considering this wattage, I figured it's not "high" lighting, it may not even qualify as "Medium" lighting. I'm seeing that the pottasium dosing is a no brainer because it's mostly obtained through supplimenting it in.
So along with my Onyx and Eco-Complete, I will dose with Flourish, Excel, Potassium, and maybe Iron. I will be stocking the tank with fish after the plants are all taken care of, so that will take care of the other Macros, correct me if I'm wrong. As for the Micros, you think I'll be obtaining appropriate amounts through the fertilization above and the natural environment in my tank?
