Am I using the correct Ferts?
I have a 75 gallon, CO2 injected, heavily planted tank that I have been trying to dose EI but I'm not sure I have everything I need. The tank is overrun with hair algae. I'm going to do the one-two punch tomorrow. Right now, I have a BML red light but have a Dutch XB on order.
I have 4 Neons, 7 Rummynose Tetras, 6 White Cloud Minnows, shrimp, Nerites, MTS and tons of pond snails. UUGGG
I have well water with pH 5.5 and 0 everything else. Tank water parameters:
pH 7.5; hardness and alkalinity 9, ammonia, nitrites and nitrates 0. According to the drop checker, the CO2 is just under yellow but according to the chart, I don't have enough??
I'm adding: 3/4 tsp KNO3, 1/4 each of KH2PO4 and CSM+B.
Thanks for the help.
