  1. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Just browsing around the net looking for a micro mix without Cu (I've got copper pipes; hard for me to believe my water doesn't contain the minute amount of Cu needed by plants and I like to minimize it for the sake of my shrimp) and came upon Brightwell's Shrimp FlorinMulti which does not...
  2. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Thanks to the members of this forum, I've come to realize that going with dry ferts is advantages vs storge bought liquid ferts. I'm looking at Aquariumfertilizer.com, GLA and Nilocg as the next step forward from my current Seachem Flourish regimen? With Seachem, they provide you with a dosing...

It was supposed to...

    Can anyone tell me how much I should dose 10% Iron Chelate (DTPA) with CSM+B (EI Dosing)? I know CSMB has SOME Iron in it, but I don't know how to compensate for that amount or if it's necessary to do so. I heard 50% of CSMB dosage, but can't find that referenced anywhere...
