Fertilizers + Greg Watson ferts

Hey everyone,

I have a 20h tank with a 55 watt light from AH supply and one 2 liter bottle of DIY CO2. The light is new, and i have a variety of plants from aquabotanic. Now that I uprgraded my lighting a string alagae has taken over!

I have heard great things about Greg Watson and I need some ferts to out compete the algae.

This is what I plan on ordering

KNO3, K2So4, KH2PO4 and CSM + B (followign the EI method.)

Also, I was wondering if you think I need another bottle of C02?

Thanks for the help,

The advantage of a second bottle of CO2 is that you can stagger their start times so one bottle is always at peak production. When you let the amount of CO2 being injected drop way down before replenishing the bottle you are inviting algae to take over. The best CO2 is the steady ppm CO2.
