A little background - started out with crap lights. Got a better light (Finnex Ray2. Med-High light). Needed CO2 at that point, so did DIY. DIY was a miserable failure resulting in a tank COVERED in BBA. Got pressurized CO2, now realize that I need more fertilizers because the Flourish alone isn't cutting it.
I've read about different dosing methods, and got so overwhelmed that I'm just going to follow the Seachem chart and do water changes on Sundays. :/
I was a little leery of Phosphorus, because I have a little cyanobacteria patch I've been fighting with. Should I lay off the phosphorus for now until I get get rid of it?
Do you think that the fertilizers and CO2 could be causing lethargy in my Emerald Cory's? They were previously really spunky and active, but I've noticed since starting the CO2, they mostly chill out under their log. I miss them scooting around on the ground looking for food.
Following Seachem dosing of Iron, Phos, Potass, Nitrogen, and Flourish, is that a pretty safe amount of everything I need? I don't want to put anything in that isn't necessary or that is going to injure my little buddies. (I love my fish, I can't help it.) I know that every tank is different and has different needs. I was hoping this would be a good maintenance dose. Also, I know dry is cheaper, but I don't have the patience for dry at the moment.
