A couple questions...

Hello everyone.
To preface this I'm slightly new to high tech planted tanks on this scale. I did high tech iwagumi with HC and hair grass and no dosing with great success, but now I'm trying to go for a Dutch style eventually. I noticed recently my ludwigia sp. red and rotala wallichii have been suffering. I picked up some seachem iron supplement as that was what first came to mind. But in recommendation by a fellow planted tank enthusiast I picked up flourish comprehensive. I'm curious to how much I should be dosing my planted 20 gallon long. Also any recommendations for a perfect photoperiod? Right now I have it 8:30am- 12pm then 4:30pm-8pm.
Your help is much appreciated!

See https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...ad.php?t=21944 for the best information. How much you dose depends on how much light you have, because the more light, the faster the plants try to grow, and the more nutrients they need to allow them to do so.
