Should I lower the EI dose on a new tank
My tank has been planted for a few weeks now. The plants are all very small and the carpet plants have not spread out yet. While I wait for the plants to grow and fill in the tank, it is a little barren and I am finding algae taking those spots.
I am using the EI method to fertilize and I wonder if I would have less algae if I lessened the dosage until the plants grow a bit? Would this help reduce algae or would it hurt the plants growth and nutrient intake? Thanks
