Micros dosing on a crypt tank...

I have a 40B that's 50+% crypts and swords, the rest is dwarf four leaf and anubias... I'm currently dosing pfertz and wondering if I should up the amount of micros I dose since practically everything in the tank uses them heavily. Any thoughts? Thanks!

Which pfertz system are you using? What are your lights/co2 like? Substrate?

I ask, because basically you're asking us to pull an answer from no where based on nothing.

Are you seeing a problem?

Sorry, I'm usually better about that.

Pfertz brand ferts.
CO2 injected with an inline diffuser, drop checker at mid-level green (almost light)
2x39W T5HO for 8hrs daily
Ecocomplete substrate with osomocote+ root tabs and red clay tabs

Micros as in trace elements? Sure. Crypts response well to trace element. I dosage my trace elements daily.

are you having any particular problem with your plants or tank? Do plants show any signs of deficiency?

Don't fix it if it isn't broken.
