I recently bought a bag of magnesium sulfate (MgSO4) heptahydrate from AAAquatics and can't seem to work out how much I need to add to reach a desired PPM of Magnesium.
Considering GH test kits would only test for the magnesium in (MgSO4) heptahydrate, I must be making a mistake in my...
I've been looks at the ratios and percents of Ca, Mg and K in the readily available GH boosters and none of the chemistry/math is lining up. I have both NilocG's and GLA's GH booster salts (and I've used seachem equilibrium in the past).
NilocG's is the only one that states a ratio for the...
I moved a while back and am finally getting back into a dosing routing with the new tanks I've got set up. You can find pics of my tanks & fish @columbus_aquascaping on instagram (https://www.instagram.com/columbus_aquascaping/). Lately I've been fighting some algae issues and likely nutrient...
Thought someone told me how to do this about a month ago but I can't find the thread.
Does anyone have a link or know how to calculate you magnesium if you know your calcium and gh?
How are people usually calculating or measuring their magnesium?
Hello, I have some problems with some of my plants. I am suspecting that I might have nitrogen, magnesium and potassium problems .
So, the question is, do I put enough fertilizer, or could I h ave another problem? I am following the tropica guide, and I thought it would be ok, because I...
I have a starter kit from aquariumplantfood.co.uk which has all of the EI basics. Here is the recipe from the website:
Mix, Shake & Leave to Dissolve Overnight:
4tsp Potassium Nitrate
1tsp Potassium Phosphate
6tsp Magnesium Sulphate
Mix, Shake & Leave...
Long story short and it should have clicked for me months ago but I realized it tonight. I have a Mg deficiency. Adding standard Seachem ferts exasperated the Mg issue but resolved several others. GH runs 15-16 but is high Ca and adding the ferts Mg can't keep up at the tap.
I'm seeing some dark veins in my leaves, which I've seen to be a sign of a magnesium deficiency. It appears most noticeably in my Rotala Indica, Rotala Macrandra, and Ludwigia Repens and Ludwigia Glandulosa. All are pictured below.
The tank is 29 gallons and I add 2 teaspoons of Equilibrium...
