Chelated iron in MTS (mineralized top soil)
when making the mineralized top soil i didnt have any clay..so i put 3 tbsp(the equivalent iron in 1 lb of clay)..at least by my rough calc. of chelated iron into the mud mix but i forgot that it dissolves so easily..now the water is yellowish. im doing big water changes every day but its still getting yellow (the iron powder is yellow thats y i htink its the iron). any ideas on how long this will last?
it is under low light ..no algae... yet..its been a week or so and the 2 small swords that are in it now are growing pretty well. its a 55gal tank and the rest of the plants are coming this week.
so....dont use chelated iron in MTS lol
