I just don't understand how to balance an aquarium. I have been researching and reading what people have to say and I am still confused. I mean I get the basic concept, but I don't understand how to do it.
I understand the basics of light, co2, and fertilizers, but how much of each? Which method? Who, What, Where, Why, When? Ahhhhhhhh!
There are SOOO many variable with planted aquariums it's difficult to figure it all out....
I am trying to figure out the best way to start dosing my two very different tanks, but every time I try to come to some type of conclusion i get confused because everyone has a different way of doing things. EI or PPS? What should I buy?
I would love to does once a week after a 25%-33% water change if possible on both my tanks. Also, I am working on getting them both more densely planted.
