People that use the ADA Step series and Brighty K, how much are you dosing?
I have a 60p and I'm experimenting using only ADA ferts for this tank. I am currently using 3 squirts of Brighty K and 1 squirt of Step 2 daily per instructions from Aquaforest Aquarium. However my plants aren't doing the best, my hydrocotyle 'japan', regular baby tears, and dwarf hairgrass 'belem' have been turning brown. My rotala 'hra' and rotala 'green' however are doing fine but seem to grow slower than I usually have seen in my past tanks. This leads me to believe I'm not dosing enough macro ferts. Now I did some research on here that says 1 squirt of Brighty K and Step Series is required for every 5 gallons of water. Since the 60p is an 18 gallon tank and with the substrate, rocks, and driftwood I'm going to guess its around 15 gallons. That means I should be squirting 3 squirts of each everyday. I did this but I got a ton of algae after one week. So I'm wondering what you guys are dosing with ADA ferts.
