When NO3 reaches 10ppm I dose 25ppm

I’d say he did but it was by utilizing capped soil. Supercharge plant growth to overtake algae.
These cups are so small I doubt much gets in the water column.
I felt that if I didn't go with the cups all plants would be lost.
Seems like when I got the worst plants into soil cups the rotting stopped.
Think the rotting plant matter was feeding the algae outbreak not so much the ferts.
The hair algae that AlgaeFix did correct was a bi-product of all the turmoil.
This is just my take on it, I could be all wrong???
I wish this on no-one for sure.
Maybe I reacted too slow thinking it would correct itself?
Tend to wait things out too long just to see what will happen.
It does add a notch on experience though!
The next 3 weeks will get a maintenance dose of AlgaeFix per week.
Don't want the hairy green to impact all this new growth.
Need to clean my Poret foam, should I use bleach or a weak acid?
This is a serious question, replies welcome.
Need to buy more of those mini-solo cups too!
