flourish vs dry trace ferts

Hey Everyone,

I've been dosing 20ml of Flourish 3 times a week (along with macros, magnesium and calcium) for my 75 gallon, and a bunch of my hygro. polysperma still seems to be having clear leaves and poor growth, i also have 2 t5ho bulbs hanging 10 inches above the tank (tank is 20" tall) with pressurized co2....however i have some dry micro ferts from my local hydroponic shop, i wondered if i'd be better to dose these rather then flourish? or maybe a mix of both? I could be wrong and please correct me if so, but aren't leaves going clear a sign of iron deficiency? Any help or thoughts are appreciated!

Thanks!

they are fast growing so you might need more. go for the dry ferts you have them its a lot cheaper that way as well.

In SoCali? Looking for fish plants equipment? want to learn something about the hobby?
