Figuring out fert dosage for low tech set up questions
I started dosing ferts 2 weeks ago in my low tech set up for the first time. I'm trying to figure out the correct dosage.
My tank is a 40 gallon and it's not fully stocked with plants although I do have a good amount in there. I have anubias cyrpts java fern and water sprite.
Since I started dosing I'm observing how the plants are reacting. Since my tank isn't fully stocked with plants I started with a real low dose of ferts. I dose 1/2 strength ei once a week the day I do a water change. I dose macros and micros recommended or a 20 gallon.
My anubais and crypts and growing like crazy but by the end of the week my water sprite starts yellowing and not looking too healthy. I noticed after a water change and dose of ferts it starts turning more green again.
Should I increase my dose? I'm worried that it might be too much if I do. Some of my anubias are 2 years old and I don't want anything to happen to them.
