Question -

hi guys,

i'm currently doing a dry start with some hc, it's slowly filling in and i'm thinking i'll fill it up in about two weeks. it has been going for about 4 weeks now.

tank: 11.4 mr. aqua
light: AquaticLife T5HO, 2x 18w, 10k bulbs. (will run 3 layers of window screen between light/tank to lower intensity)
co2: yes, pressurized paintball
substrate: yubao
photoperiod: will be 8 hours (unless that is too long)

I want to get an idea of what type of ferts i should be dosing, and how often. i only have a bottle of Pfertz "N" right now, but have been reading that Potassium is a must with HC. how much of it, and often should i dose the Potassium? And should I use the Pfertz "N"?

thanks in advance.

NPK and Micros. I would add root tabs also. Take a look here.
