Hey everyone, thank for the comments, and sorry for my late reply.
I almost saw the difference in 3 4 days, first the color and then the growth rate went mad. Before I used to have lots and lots of BBA and thread algae all over, and I was sure of my CO2 levels. But after starting EI dosing algae cleared up in 2 weeks. EI is just miracle and I don't know what I was thinking before, and how complicated it came to me before. Very easy straight forward and most important, IT WORKS.
I dose 6 days, Macros and CSMB each other day.
I have realized some plants specially the green large leaved plants had white spots and holes and the AR mini had stunted growth and slight discoloration. But now that I started dosing Ferrous Gluconate, Im seeing a difference, the AR mini and the regular AR are getting its dark burgundy red color. And I realized the green leaves are no more white with darker veins. So it might well be true about the UV, I will try shutting it off and only have it running 3 days a week.
Ive put 160mg FerrousGluconate into 2000cc of water. Although I mixed it very well white particles seem not to dissolve. But I have started dosing from this solution I made, 24cc 3 times a week. Fİsh are ok, and plants are darker in red and greener near the surface.
I now have couple of black neon and a couple of SAE, I will stock more, but I want to try out this FeGluconate first.
Yes I will take more pictures up close tomorrow.
See you all later
Bump: Sorry just realized that Scarlet temple is the AR Im talking about. First time I heard that
