hi hoppy, yes i dose everything(macros,NPK+fe), but just don't know how much to dose.
i have a 36g(approx 32g water) with 2" Eco complete and 1" reg gravel. with 65w PC(1.8wpg).on for 12H a day i have 15 low plants hardy plants:
2x Crypt Wendtii,2x Java Fern,2x Micro Sword,2x Amazon Sword,1x Hastifolia, 1x Lanceolota,1x Ruffle Sword,1x Tiger Lotus,1x Anacharis, 1xCoffeefolia, 1x Vals Corkscrew
Now many of my plants have black spots with holes in them, but 1 of them has these black sprinkles on them that dont comes off (maybe bad case of black spot algae??) heres a similar picture :
im dosing using EI: (currently using seachem products)
SUNDAY:50%WC. ADD TRACE (2ml)
MONDAY:ADD Nitrate(if needed yet), ADD PHOSPHATE(5ML),POTASSIUM (7ml)
WEDNESDAY:ADD Nitrate(if needed yet), ADD PHOSPHATE(5ML),POTASSIUM (7ml),Iron (2ml)
FRIDAY:ADD Nitrate(if needed yet), ADD PHOSPHATE(5ML),POTASSIUM (7ml)
so weekly total is
phosphate=15ml which =.6ppm
potassium=21ml which = 8ppm
my nitrate was 40ppm, i did 50% wc today, it dropped to 15ppm now
i dont add more npk, becasue i know trace has some too.
so is this an okay dosing setup??? i dont think my dosing caused algae, i kno the plants had some black spots on them when i got them, and it probably just spreaded because of my nitrates.
im currently over dosing excel, and adding algaefix to get rid of algae, HOPE IT GOES AWAY.
