Hey Hilde,

Thanks for the advice. I haven't tested water in forever. So much that the GH test is expired. Nitrates is indeed hovering only at 10. Guess I'll have to push that dosage up. Must be the increased lights using it faster than I thought.
You can always have it tested at a pet store.

I am experimenting with Calcium Nitrate for my plants seem to need a lot of calcium. Possible because my tap water is very soft. Calcium Nitrate contains Calcium 24.425%, Nitrogen 17.072% and Oxygen 58.503%. Thus hoping it will help red plants that need Co2 injected to adjust to Excel.
