Question re: partial EI dosing
I just ordered some EI ferts to dose because I am having some trouble with my plants not growing as quickly as they should, and a bit too much algae. 30g long tank, with 4x39 T5 6700k. I dose with Flourish every other day (3x a week). Dirted substrate with dolomite, potash red clay powder and Miracle Gro Organic potting soil, blasting sand cap. 2 DIY CO2 canisters with nano diffusers on each end of the tank, close to the powerheads for circulation.
I ordered KNO3 and KH2PO4. Since my phosphate levels are high enough, should I skip dosing the phosphate and just dose the nitrogen, or should I just dose both? I don't want the phosphate levels to be TOO high.
