Well getting back to the tank at hand I have started dosing the following:
Nitrogen: 2.7 ml
Phosphorus: 5 ml
Trace: 2.5 ml
Iron 1.2 ml
Potassium: 2.5 ml
It seems like the crypts are still doing well, the Christmas moss is doing well aside form this fuzzy algae here and there. I put a few ghost shrimp in yesterday hoping they could help a bit since SAE and otos don't seem to be arriving any time soon.
The AR is growing and getting a bit thick, maybe slightly more red, but that still needs work. Do I just need to give it time to settle in?
The DHG I replanted about 10 days ago when I started the dosing, and it doesn't look too different, not sure if runners take a bit, or I need to start something different? I've heard Eco complete can make it tough for them. Should I get aquasoil and replace is just in the front spots where the grass is and keep the other plants? Never heard of a mixing of substrates, but may be worth trying here?
I tested my water today and the results were...
Ammonia: 0.5 ppm
Nitrite: 0 ppm
Nitrate: 20 ppm
kH: 2 drops
gH: 3 drops
Phosphate: 2 ppm
