I've found multiple threads on dosing, but was hoping I could get some
reassurance that I'm doing it right. I've read that the fish load and amount
of plants have an impact on the dosing, but I'm not sure where I fall on the
scale. I'm wondering if I have a low, medium, or high stocking of plants.
I have 7 discus and about 30 smaller fish. They get fed worms in the morning
and tetra bits at night. I also have been having a problem with what looks
like hair algae. From what I've read this is normal for a newly planted tank.
The tank has been established for over a year and I have just planted the
tank a few weeks ago.
All of my other information is listed in my signature below, except the reactor is not the ab 1000 yet.
My water parameters are:
ph-6.9 to 7.0
nitrate- 5 to 10
phosphate-10+(that's as high as the test goes)
co2- 21 to 26
Schedule as follows:
Sun-KN03(1/2tsp),KH2P04(1/4tsp),K2S04(1/4tsp),50% water change
Thanks in advance for your help. I really want to get this right so I don't kill
the fish. Its been a long road learning about aquariums/discus and I would
like it if I didn't kill anymore of my discus.
