Tap Water Nutrients?????
Why does it seem that my tap water has the 'miracle' nutrient? It seems that after every water change, I add the ferts and everything pearls like crazy for the first couple of days. After that, even though I continue to dose on a pretty good schedule, I get less pearling, less vigorous growth until the next water change. It seems that my tap water contains a nutrient that once used up, limits growth. Anyone else having the same thing happen?
Tapwater Carbonate Hardness - 3 dKH
My dosing schedule:
2.47 grams KNO3 3X a week.
(Nitrates at 20 ppm and Pottasium at 12.61 ppm)
0.16 grams KH2PO4 3X a week
(1.5 ppm Phosphate)
4.61 grams MgSO4 3X a week
(6 ppm Magnesium)
and 0.1 grams GW traces on off days, figured for iron at 0.2 ppm.
