I need a liquid fertz tutorial
Once upon a time I tried EI dosing in my 20g tank. I followed the dosing schedule developed by Tom Barr and I ended up with an algae nightmare. After I got rid of the all the algae, I got some advice from The Barr Report and tried EI dosing again with reduced/adjusted doses. But the result was the same: algae explosion. So I gave up on fertilizing almost entirely. About once a month I put in a capful of Flourish Comprehensive (which I think is mostly micros). Other than that, I rely on the natural method (i.e., fish poo). My plants grow slowly/moderately (which is fine with me), but I assume they would look healthier if they were getting good fertz. So, for my new 55g that I'm setting up, I am thinking of trying liquid fertilizers (probably the Seachem NPK product line). Can anyone give me advice on using this type of product in a way that won't result in a plague of algae?
