Can you recommend a liquid fert Regime?
Hey guys I've got a high tech tank, high light, pressurized co2.
I'm using seachem liquid ferts, nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus, iron, and the comprehensive. Using ada aqua soil.
It's aprox 70gal tank (225l) could someone help with a Regime? My nutrient uptake is extremely high, cannot raise my nitrates above 0 even triple dosing recommended amounts of nitrogen.
I dose nitrogen everyday with iron. Potassium second daily and comprehensive third daily, does this sound Ok?
I don't understand the science an math of it all sorry.
Also not sure how to measure my co2, I run aprox 3bps but not sure how much is dissolved, was using a drop checker and it always said it was way to high but my fish, ph and algae issues suggested otherwise. I have very soft tap water with ph of 7. Tank water is 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites and 0 nitrates with one 25% w/c a week and pruning
I'm running 4x39w t5 HO 6 hours with co2 running 8 hours (starting 2 hours before light) tank only has cardinal tetras and ottos so definitely not overcrowded or over fed.
any help would be great, preferably in terms remembering I don't have a chemistry degree, thanks so much!!!
