Still have not met any confirmed cases for kills with ferts.......


Almost weekly someone gases and kills their fish.
Go 1st class on CO2, it is money well spent.

Low but good quality light, and good CO2........then nutrients etc are far easier.

This is how most of the ADa line is set up(measure the light on nice examples)
and is also exactly what Ole, Claus and Troels also have long suggested as well George Booth way back 15 years ago etc..........

It's the hobbyist that do not listen.

"More light is better" is the most deterimental attitude in the planted hobby.
