can someone suggest an EI dosing routine for me.
I'd like to ask your advice about my aquarium if I may. I have had BGA for a few months and have done a 3 day blackout, most if not nearly all of the BGA has gone and the tank is looking a better. It is approx 1/4 planted.
Soo what do I do now. My tank is a Juwel 180 with 2 x 30 w tubes, aqua glow and sun glow, both tubes have reflectors on them. I dose DIY C02 and have the bog std built in filter which I am changing for a Rena XP2 external cannister filter. My PH is approx 6.6, nitrite 0, ammonia 0, Nitrate 40-60. Phosphate is around 5-6. Kh around 5-6. My tap water is around 5.0, very low Nitrate in the tap.
So I dont want the BGA to reappear and I thought it was caused by high Phosphrate and low Nitrate. I used to do water change 3 times per week, approx 10L each time.
What is the best way forward for me now. Should I consider to reduce the Phosphate in the tank?
I'd like to try EI dosing as I have read good things about it but not too sure where to start or how to. Can you give me some guide lines based on my parameters for a starting point and things to look for that might mean I need to change the dosing routine.
I currently have Discus and rams in the tank.
